Cripple Creek, Colorado,

A man killed by a rattlesnake

Within this grave

Bit by a snake-

No whisky handy”

Who died fighting for a lady’s honor

(She wanted to keep it)”

    I went there years ago and the town was like a Ghost Town, but I really enjoyed it. I have been told it has been revitalized now.
