Lots of suggestions here, but what is wrong with C-a C-k C-k C-y C-y?

You mean yyp perhaps? The exact analogy of the above, but shorter.

Once upon a time, I thought it was cute to write elisp functions to
implement marginal time savings like the one you ask for. But in the
end, it turns out I am not using them enough to justify the cost of
writing them in the first place, and I even end up forgetting about
having such shortcuts when I could have used them.

Spend a little time on learning to use keyboard macros instead. They can
save a lot of time if you find yourself doing the same thing over and
over again.
