Elvis Presley's Bird Murder Poem Up for Sale

3/17/2009 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Like a mirror image of Elvis Presley's life, this poem written by the King of Rock 'n' Roll starts with promise and then ends in sudden, unforeseen tragedy.

Elvis Presley
The handwritten poem -- which is part of the massive Elvis auction going on at gottahaverockandroll.com -- is called "Ode to a Robin," and was sometimes recited by Elvis on stage and at one point was used as the answering machine message at his home.

Presley's poem could be yours for a hunka, hunka change -- an estimated 4-5 thousand bucks.

Fun fact: We're told former President Bill Clinton has ordered a catalog for the sale.

Elvis' death was an "unforeseen tragedy?" What are you guys smokin'? The man was a raging drug addict for years before his death.

Not sure whether inspired by Elvis or vice-versa, but I learned a similar short verse more than 40 years ago, which presaged nothing:
A little bird
With a yellow bill
Sat upon my window sill
I coaxed it near with bits of bread
And then I crushed its f*cking head
