Cold War Scream

Posted to Action Poetry




he was the
..."KING"...
1958 - we all
gathered round
the B&W T.V. tube
Ed Sullivans really
....."Big Show!"...
the Burley boys
had some beers
I tried one
musta been all
of five....
couple of sips
....(SMACK).....
I was flyin'
next thing I knew,
both families were
seated for the show
when Elvis appeared
they hid his majesties
hips behind a screen
that's when we laughed
that Cold War scream......WIREMAN
