Legend of Elvis Part II

That Good ol`Elvis
Sure could use his pelvis
The established society became shocked
After Hound Dog his show nearly got blocked

    Nice clerihew! I like this one better than the first one - somehow portrays how shocking he was better in this one :)

    Well, I was never an Elvis fan. all of that noise hurts my senses. But, what do I know. I was different from day one. Lots of good rhyming in this poem. Jancarl

    Good one to complement the first clerihew you wrote about the late great Elvis.

    HAHA I remember that. When he was on Ed Sullivan they would only let the camera view him from the waist up. Good one my friend. God Bless, JB Thanks so much for the kind words about my Jessie James poem . :)

    Yup, the sensation that shocked a generation! A sad end though. Loved both parts Arild especially the "Presley - freshly" rhyme. Too clever!

    Hey...you need to have Anne Lise write a Clerihew...u are supposed to pass the torch, friend. Shake a stick now...lol.

    ha ha...Elvis shaking his famous pelvis still makes our generation BLUSH, Arild..that's why I wanted you to write part 2...ha ha. I am glad you had FUN which was the intention..This leads me to my question here..is poetry more of an ART for you or a THERAPY? I am so emotionally uplifted when I write poetry..it delights my soul and is like an antidepressant at times..more of a therapy than an art for me. Don't tell the more serious poets tho..shhhh. OUr secret. Delighted with this Clerihew..Hope Bob stops over too...

    writing poetry for me is definitely both therapy,as well as art.It all depends of what I write.The Third Eye which I posted,has alot of the therapy factor..needed to get it out.And yes,me too,I feel extremely uplifted once I get the write rolling:) But on the other hand,I get extremely irritated if I get stuck with a write,and has to scrape the bottom of my brain to find the finish lines to it.But it usually solves it self after a lil`time out:)Im All Shook Up..

    I am glad that someone wrote a clerihew on Elvis. You did a good job with it too, Arild - the Elvis/pelvis rhyme is perfectly apt.
