'On John Bun'

 'On John Bun', an illustration by John Vernon Lord for an anonymous poem
in The Song That Sings The Bird, Poems for Young children, 
chosen by Ruth Craft, Collins 1989, page 53.

The Text

Here lies John Bun;
He was killed by a gun.
His name was not Bun, but Wood;
But Wood would not rhyme with Gun, and Bun would.
