Poetry By: patspoems

I entered a challenge that was to invite a famous person, either past or present, for a dinner date and ask them 3 questions and their replies.

Elvis by Royce S.
All dressed up in my best attire
Hair and make-up all just so
Shoes with heels three inches high
Looked real great but feet on fire
All a jitter I take my place
At the table set for two
Will he, won't he come I ask
Then all at once I saw his face
Older now than in times gone by
But that handsome man I'd know anywhere
His crooked grin and sexy smile
And still that twinkle in his eye
Great to see you Elvis, I said in awe
I'm so glad that you could come
I hope you didn't mind that I chose you
You so rich and me quite poor
I was honoured he whispered low
When I knew that I was the one you chose
Out of all the people it could have been
It was me you wanted to know
We talked for hours like long lost mates
He told me of his hopes and dreams
I asked what was his greatest wish
He said to be welcomed by Jesus at the pearly gates
I smiled and then proposed a toast
To our friendship long may it last?
It can't he said then just disappeared
I had been dining with Elvis's ghost
