Bono's Elvis poem is getting a rather mixed reception. See Timesonline etc today.

Poets are so sensitive!

Elvis and Company.

You know this in your heart,
Now know it in your head,
Elvis followed Beethoven,
And joined the lesser dead.
They do no doubt endure,
Because of song and score,
Along with Micheangelo,
And Socratese of yore.
Just think of those who've passed,
Like Leonardo. Gone.
But you never see the last,
Of names that just live on.
Mankind mourns their like,
All of the lesser dead.
You knew this in your heart,
Now you know it in your head.

That's his opinion but it's the people who keep their heroes alive forever. In my heart Elvis will be the King of Rock who made an impact in the minds and hearts of all Americans. South, North and Central...!
