Subject: RE: BS: REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT POEM
My dad, who is 84, recently told me this one. He'd seen it, as a boy of about 7 or 8, on the last covered wagon to pass through the town he grew up in, in Colorado:

"California - Starvation
Utah - Mormon Nation
Colorado - Irrigation
It beats hell and damnation
But, I'm going back to my wife's relations!"
