WENN

A collection of Elvis Presley's personal notes and poetry is set to hit the auction block.

Bing: Record Presley auctions

The handwritten messages include a poem in which the "Jailhouse Rock" icon describes smashing a robin perched on his windowsill. It reads, "He sang his sweet song so sweetly and paused for a moments lull / I gently raised the window and crushed his f­------ skull."

Presley's copy of Kahlil Gibran's book "The Prophet' will also go under the hammer at the Omega Auctions sale in Stockport, England, on March 9.

   it just tarnishes his image, but maybe it shows his humor, if you call it that.

i would imagine the ex or the daughter would have to be selling these letters.  Times are tough for all heh ?

It must be a thrill to know this man was your father or part of your life.  He will always be the King of Rock and Roll.
