What Did Elvis Know About the Sex Pistols?

Anything?
At all?

The timing’s quite tight
is my belief:

Elvis, dead
the Pistols rise to fame

His last performance
the summer of ’77

Their first
noted
performance
1976

When did they receive initial airplay
in the USofA?

I am weaned-off
internet search engines
I reckon a guess
is good enough

What would The King
have made of the anarchists?

And they of him?

Let’s imagine
briefly:

“An imagined meeting
a social exchange”

Would an expression of awe determine the looks on their little faces?
Would he have been gracious and expressed warmth?

You might think not
but it could have been

Quickly passing by
feelings of awkwardness

Talk about home
settles everyone

Mom and Pop
Mother and Father

Grandparents
lost and living

A little dog from long ago
the family pet

On impulse
someone suggests a cappella
They do it

Arms resting over each other’s shoulders
although careful not to mess up anyone’s hair

Fist-bumps happen at the end
and “Whenever you’re next in town…”

That’s how it’d go
as far as anyone knows
