It’s a sad way to remember “Old Elvis,”
a man who did more than most with his pelvis.
Must have moved it to a feverous Las Vegas pitch,
trying to move his last fried PB and banana samitch!

The “KING” died on the throne!

    Yours was sure one of the funniest. I could just picture that poor old Elvis doing that pelvic thrusting when his body was starting to go to pot. Congrats on your win.
