Grave New World

This Elvis Presley artifact
If you have the space and
Inclination means you can buy
Where he rested before Graceland.

One hundred grand is the opening bid ---
That price may make you swoon.
This crypt sale will be held
In Beverly Hills in June.

You may recall the coffin of
Lee Harvey Oswald when
It was sold for $87,000
In December of 2010.

These should be classified
As morbid memorabilia.
Or (even though it isn’t a word)
I’d call them necrobilia.

Some say these items are investments.
I see them as rather foolish
Things to spend good money on ---
Call it a goulash of ghoulish.
