Springtime in Memphis Tennessee
traveling with friend
last named pronounced Lee.
Stopping at a coffee bar
taking photos with local star.
Then going to river named Mississippi
taking sideway photos of Melodie.
Then off to Elvis’s daughters plane
“Lisa Marie” across from Graceland.
Brick wall with graffiti by fans for the King
just plain writing with no sparkling bling.
Elvis’s mansion surrounded by gate
store nearby with Elvis plate.
And of course an Elvis toy
given as gift for girl or boy.
Razel did take photo with King
she got a kiss, but wanted a fling.
Then up north from there is downtown
we stopped and listened to Jazz all around.
Razel took photos with ‘singers of the blues’
she posed sideways with no shoes
singers laughing totally amused.
Then Razel took a 1 hr snooze
while driving to Florida to get on a cruise.
Memphis was fun don’t get me wrong
this is the place where Elvis still sings his songs.
