Waiting at the Pearly Gate

A pink cadillac with a bar in the back
and a radio with stereo, wide white wall
tires, and bumper to bumper chrome
is not something that I own,
but Elvis did, and it seemed to serve him well
far as I can tell, except of course
right there at the end, when St. Peter said
cars aren’t allowed in heaven.
