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.

I *love* this poem and when the massive flocks of starlings start up in the spring I think of it. It is also great to run through your head when you are forced to watch those old crappy happy disney films with the kids...smash and their goes thumpers head...

People of todays world don't know music when they hear it. All they know is bang and clang and yelling. Any can record a song if you can scream loud enough , cuss mother, father police and slander God!!!!!!!!!!!! That is what they call music. I call it trash. Elvis is King and will always be. Open your hears.

You guys are nuts! yes he was a prettyboy that's obvious, but as far as a ok singer get off drugs moron! He had a voice of gold that could make the angels cry and not because of it's range but because of the sheer sound. Charisma he had in spades and did he write his own music? NO! But let's face it he put on a hell of a show and NO he could not act! But he sure as hell could sing. He gave a lot to people less fortunate cars, money, charities and yes black music had a affect on him but he put his own style on it. So for all you haters watch the 68 comeback special and get back to me.
