POETRY/ELVIS PRESLEY

                     The king of Rock and Roll
                       He is the dream of them all

                         Quiet or  bloud short yet tall
                           In a dream I once had
                            It was nice yet sad
                             The memories we had
                               We can remembember, a tad

                                           It was nice,  and bright
                                  With the stars and light
                                   Something soft, I heard
                                     a sound
                                      Its the sound of rock
                                        of rock and roll
                                         A sweet touch
                                           a gentle kiss
                                           Still I can
                                             remember his lips
                                            A memory of
                                                 somebody
                                                we know
                                             He is the dreams
                                                of them all

    Too bad he went and blew it all
    sitting one night, on the toilet bowl.

    Hung himself instead… another talent gone.
