I Am The Walrus - From a Lewis Carroll poem about a Walrus who tricks a generation of oysters to come to his house. Once there, he pounces and eats them. He's portrayed as evil character in the poem.  He cries after eating them because there are no future generations to eat. Lennon is laughing (crying) because the psychedelic culture he promotes is destroying a generation. The eggmen are the people who tried to put Humpty Dumpty together again, Humpty Dumpty being the 60's generation.
