Elvis Knows Conversation

"i'm so confused" her friend
confided as they ran.
"he's all talk
but where's the action?"

she hated hearing her friend in pain
but she also knew
humor was there,
just lurking beneath the surface.

so, she directed her friend
to elvis singing
"a little less conversation"
which, she supposed, was something
he knew a thing or two about.

if nothing else,
they could have a good laugh
while puzzling over the
challenging species known
among wildlife biologists as
"the twenty-six year old male."
