Of all of Gerard Beirne's poems, All The Elvis's Have Left The Building, has long been an audiance favourite. Comparing the life and death of Elvis to the life and death of Christ, this long poem explores the tenuous nature of fame and the importance of death in sustaining both the reality and the myth of our spiritual lives.
