Bono Poem About Elvis To… Eh, You've Already Read Enough, Right?

BBC Radio 4 will broadcast "a bizarre 14-minute poem about Elvis Presley written by Bono, the U2 frontman." A sample verse: "Elvis the ecstatic/ Elvis the plastic/ Elvis the elastic with a spastic dance that could explain the energy of America." Also he uses The N Word.

Which Nobel should Bono get first, Literature or Peace?

These are the lyrics to Elvis Presley Ate America from the Passengers album, which U2 did with Brian Eno in the early '90s. Miss Sarajevo is from the same album. It also has some music that U2 did for the very last Antonioni film.
