Elvis – don’t be cruel!

A verse written by Elvis for his hairdresser Homer Gilleland in the early 70s went up for auction in Los Angeles inNovember. Mr Gilleland was Elvis’s hairdresser for twenty years and said Elvis often recited the verse to him. He asked Elvis to write it down so he could show his friends, which he did and signed it EP. Mr Gilleland said it demonstrated Elvis’s sense of humour.

The poem goes:

As I awoke this morning, when all sweet things are born

a robin perched on my window sill to greet the coming dawn

He sang his sweet song so sweetly and paused for a moment’s lull.

I gently raised the window and crushed his F*****g skull”

A spokesman for the auctioneers said “This poem is really quite shocking and not something you would expect from the King. He obviously never intended for it to be published” You don’t say!
