When I was in the first grade,

a kid a grade above me
told me in that really confident way kids do when an adult has taught them a new and controversial fact that

Elvis didn’t invent rock and roll.

It was really Chuck Berry.
 

As a result,

this is how I spent a year

in the early 1980s telling everyone
that Gong Show host Chuck Barris also invented rock and roll –

which in retrospect
seems as plausible as anything else

what with him being a secret agent and all.
 

RIP Chuck Berry (1926–2017) and thanks for all the rock and/or roll.

 
update 10 p.m., 21 december 2017
RIP to Chuck Barris (1929–2017) too – the real king of rock and roll, not Elvis Costello.
