For a hurricane of puns,
And allusions by the ton,
You know there can be just one:
Jokes about the written word,
Are not just for grammar nerds,
Who delights in the absurd?
If by plot-holes you are vexed,
Sub-text leaving you perplexed?
He explains through Thursday Next,
Or if magic’s what you’re after,
Who saves quarkbeasts from disaster,
With some string and sticking plaster?
Each new world of his devising
Is as rich as it’s surprising,
Who can keep the tension rising?
Prompt: A writer you admire
Form: Ballad (with added refrain)
