The King

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     "I am sick of all this talk. Elvis, Elvis, Elvis. That is all you talk about," Sam said.
 
2     "I have lived in this house for a long time," Sara said. "I know he was a king!"
 
3     Sam and Sara kept arguing. Sam and Sara are spiders. They live in the attic of Graceland. Graceland was Elvis Presley's home.
 
4     "Whatever," Sam said. "I have seen him in films. He did not wear a crown. He was not a king."
 
5     "He did not have to wear a crown," Sara said. "He was not the king of a country. He was the king of rock and roll."
 
6     "What on earth is rock and roll?" Sam asked.
 
7     "Don't be silly," Sara said. She added another line to her web. "Rock and roll is a kind of music. It is a little bit of gospel. It has some country in it. It has some blues in it, too."
 
8     "Well, that sounds like a mixed-up mess," Sam said.
 
9     Sara gave Sam an angry look.
