Colorado City…..

…..Colorado; is a WOW!
Not always but it is now,
In 1861 Colorado City was the Territory Capitol, for a short time,
The city was a bawdy place and it had quite a shine.

In 1864 a great flood wiped out half of the crops,
One month later millions of grasshoppers finished the tops,
The City had been built on an Indian crossroad,
A boundary between tribes, the streams carried quite a load.

Fancy people from back east wanted no part of the town,
But gold was discovered in Cripple Creek, that wiped away the frown!
The buildings from that time exist in town now,
All spiffed up and ready - they await your wow.
