Benidorm: a region of Spain?
Or a place where one called Ben can sleep and rest their brain?

‘Big Ben’ is a famous London landmark, a huge clock beside Parliament and the river,
‘Big’ Ben, the cockney giant, wears a large sock and has an enlarged liver.

As a juvenile, Michael Jackson had a big hit with the song ‘Ben,’
With his Afro hairstyle resembling a microphone at the time,
I thought there was something funny about him back then.

Nigel and Tony Benn share the same surname, but are very different men.
Nigel, as a pugilist, made his living with his fists,
Whereas the politician, Tony, was better suited to making lists…

Mr Benn, the animated series aimed at children, about a man in Festive Road,
Who visited a costume shop, tried on different outfits and had adventures each episode.
The shopkeeper—who appeared ‘as if by magic’—was very patient with Mr Benn,
Who never bought anything and seemed jobless, which was a stigma back then.
