ELVIS POETRY

Page 12

Yes, Elvis, we do 


Elvis i cant stop Loving you 
Its an all too familiar cry 
Made by Fans the whole worldwide 
Why did you have to die? 

Its not so Funny when time slips away 
By all that's right and true 
Futures come and Years have Passed 
But Elvis we still Love You 

Will they Remember Me?, you asked your nurse 
you did not have to wonder 
for i will answer in this Verse 
YES for Eternity and Yonder

Our Love Letters to you, written in rhyme 
Are Steadfast Loyal and True 
they Echo everyone of us 
and that's the Wonder Of You 

E stands for Eternity our Love Will go on 
L stands for Loyalty so true and so strong 
V stands for Voice so Wonderful and Pure 
I stands for Idolise of that you can be sure 
S stands for Steadfast the way you carried on 

They all stand for ELVIS 
The master of a song 

Though i never met you 
And that's a crying shame 
The World since you left it it 
Just don't feel the same 

Your Smile so Sweet, your Soul so Gifted 
When we hear you today, our Hearts are Lifted 
Good night Sweet Prince, and Rest in Peace 
Know our Love for you will never Cease 

For now this Poem will come to a Close 
Our thoughts and Feelings put down in Prose 
Altogether our Memories will Keep you in touch 
Thank you Elvis, Thank you very Much.

The King of Rock-n-Roll  

Poem

Aptheosis of the Cat

In the Beginning was the Word
And the Word was Elvis
Born in a shorn off shotgun shack
And raised on a diet of grits and greens
He was suckled sour on The American dream

This hillbilly cat from Beale Street
Hair long grackle black and oil slicked back
Mortuary slab Sideburns Snake hipped
Pelvis whirling buccaneer
Curling his enamelled sneerGyrating whirligig Acne strewn Adonis
With Kentucky caterwaul reverberates
To the rustling of a million petticoats
From the first fumble of the butterfly
To the unbridling tempestErotic sideshow messiah
He will sway and strut
Gyrate and tantalize
The adolescent swoon
Like milk lipped lambs who gambol to the chop

How are the mighty fallen (1)
And sprawled across this toilet floor
Beneath the crumpled shroud of dawn
Dethroned Defrocked Deceased
Somehow immortal.

(1) "How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!"

(2) Samuel 1:19-27 RSV

Two Broken Hearts Reunited In Heaven

IT WAS THE SIXTEENTH OF AUGUST NINETEEN SEVENTY SEVEN
THE KING OF ROCK AND ROLL WAS CALLED UP TO HEAVEN
I WAS DOING THE WASHING UP WHEN MY DAD CALLED OUT AND SAID
HEY OUR GIN ELVIS PRESLEY IS DEAD
I FELT SO SICK AND A FEELING OF EMPTYNESS INSIDE
HOW COULD THIS LIVING LEGEND JUST SUDDENLY DIE
LIKE ANY OTHER ELVIS FAN I JUST BROKE DOWN AND CRIED
I WENT TO BED WITH MY RADIO ON
AND BETWEEN THE TALKING THEY WERE PLAYING HIS SONGS
THOSE WORDS WERE GOING OVER IN MY HEAD
EVERY TIME THE ANNOUNCER SAID
ELVIS PRESLEY THE KING OF ROCK AND ROLL IS DEAD
THEY SAID IT WAS A MASSIVE HEART ATTACK
BUT WAS IT REALLY A BROKEN HEART?
AS ON THE FOURTEENTH OF AUGUST NINETEEN FIFTY EIGHT
HIS MOTHER DIED OF HEART FAILURE,
WAS HE THINKING OF THIS DATE?
ELVIS WAS PERSUADED TWO DAYS LATER TO LEAVE HER SIDE
NINETEEN YEARS EXACTLY BETWEEN HER FUNERAL AND THE DAY THAT ELVIS PRESLEY DIED.
TWO BROKEN HEARTS REUNITED IN HEAVEN.

'ELVIS PRESLEY WAS UNIQUE THERE HAS NEVER BEEN ANY OTHER SINGER WHO COULD SING SUCH A VARIETY OF SONGS AND PUT SO MUCH MEANING INTO THEM HE WAS A VERY TALENTED MAN,
TO ME HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN AS THE KING
HIS MUSIC WILL KEEP HIM ALIVE FOREVER'.

FROM ONE OF YOUR GREATEST FANS
