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 loved to recite this X-Rated Poem to his friends
He did so many times - Now this Elvis X-Rated has become legend.

"Long before Elvis stumbled upon the ODE TO A ROBIN I saw it in Playboy magazine
Sorry, Elvis did not write this poem
I think Sonny (West) and I were the only ones who knew that Elvis didn't write it
But I guess we figured , "what the heck" let him have his fun, "

you people are so sick. Elvis was the one that got it all going. Do some research. He was more than an ok singer. Great voice coaches have said his range was remarkable. He was talened and w/o gimmicks. He loved to perform and all the great musicians have said before there was Elvis there was nothing. The hightlight of Jimmy Page (Led Zepplin God guitarist) carear was meeting Elvis. So you flunkies who think that the new generation of pop artist are it, I don't think they will be remembered 32 yrs after there death. The number one selling stamp was the one with him on it and his home is in the top five of houses visited, Also he did unplugged before VH1 thought of it, He did a concert seen around the world by over a billion people, was the hightest paid act for a very long time and still makes 30million a year. So go F..K yourselves if you don't get it. Get some taste and learn to reaearch before you post stupidity.

elvis is a joke and everyone thinks he's great. he stole many a black musicians music and claimed it to be his own and now we see that he would kill because something sang better than him. he was a pathetic drug user and people think he's god. get over it and let him be dead.

That verse is very similar to a boot camp cadence that we used to sing while running in formation.

This is the woman beater that white people are ok with. Funny huh? Elvis can beat his wife, no big deal. Chris brown alledgedly beats his girlfrirnd, white people poo in their pants. MJ is cleared and found innocent of molesting the little lying mexican rug rats, to the dismay of white people, who looked the other way when Woody Allen married his daughter!

Thanks for the hypocrisy pale faces!
