MENTAL NOTE

"Though we cannot make our sun stand still, yet we will make him run."
Blue, resist the urge to use facebook. You can do it. Good luck.
Cats and dogs can be friends. So can cowboys and indians. So can we.
Why try to be the best when there's no hierarchy in heaven?

Copycatting True Blue

My friend Truedessa wrote THIS wonderful clerihew poem about Elvis. I just had to copycat her. It was an urge I couldn't resist. I guess I'm weak that way...

Remember that guy, Elvis Presley,
who liked guns like that Naked guy, Leslie?
He'd wiggle his hips, then BANG! shoot his 'telly'
When the news mocked his King-sized um.... belly.

Yes, he was watching TV in heaven. Duh....

  1. Threatening us with another Elvis sighting?
    Will he come back from the grave like The Crow or just come out of hiding? Because if he's still alive, the dude is really, really old...

    1. I was thinking about Halloween. What if he were to come back... with a vengeance? That Leslie guy was all over his Cilla ;)

  4. 'Elvis has left the building'
    And much as we dislike hearing
    A refusal to know
    Of such 'no-show'
    Too long but to start believing

      The Poetry Tank...
      Came back from the dead
      To show Leslie his tricks
      When he was too busy getting his fix
      As you can see in that scene
      If you know what I mean...

    1. But he came back in 91 when he saw That Naked Gun going all friendly on his Priscilla....

  6. You may have to bring Leslie back too
    For he is long dead at his zoo
    Unless they truly go Ghost
    Then a remake within a reboot at your coast
    You should be ashamed of that
    Would his ghostly naked gun even work all corporal where he's at?
    Do I really want to know?
    May have to reboot that thought as away I go

  7. Well the girl of my best friend done good! Trudessa - it was perfect. Cant help falling in love with that.

    However, I have suspicious minds about the movie. Looks like the devil in disguise to me but I am a hard headed woman with a wooden heart.
    Sending you a big hunk o’love my hound dog:)

  8. The reboot would actually be called Elvis Presley: A Real Star. Then we would have a documentary and afterwards someone would make a comedy version Elvis Presley: The Belly Shot. What can I say, I'm a title girl. Anyway Elvis lives on through his music, legacy and conspiracy theorists.

    Checked out Truedessa's poem, it was really good and structured well. Yours of course brings the funny realism you always have. :) Oh man that image made my afternoon. Thanks Blue.

    1. You sure are fond of titles, all right. Well, I love his music and I'm the proud owner of all of his records, outtakes included. I crazy that way.

      Truedessa is a true poet.

      Thank you.

    1. You bet. Too bad I was too young to see him perform on Hawaii back in 1973.

  12. I have to quote Chuck D and Public Enemy here when I say, "Elvis was a hero to most, but he never meant sh*t to me you see, he was straight up racist, that sucker was, simple and plain, mother f*** him and John Wayne."
    RIP Leslie Nielsen, a true hero.

  13. I recently went through a random obsession trying to make myself believe that Elvis really faked his death! Are you trying to trigger this again?!

    ReplyDelete
  14. There have been rumors to that effect....Not long ago some conspiracist posted a picture of what he supposedly looks like today. The king isn't looking so good. His pelvic thrusts might not be quite as impressive today.
