Have Pun, Will Travel

Whenever the going got dire
to Paladin folks sent a wire
He'd come to their aid
but had to be paid
to launder his all-black attire

A life in the West could be hard
so Paladin passed out his card
He liked both his wine
and gals to be fine
and quoted at length from the bard

The TV western Have Gun, Will Travel aired from 1957-63. Actor Richard Boone starred as the cultured gun-for-hire and knight-errant, Paladin.
