Kansas vacation

Our Kansas Vacation place
(One Old Mans opinion)
Living on the Kansas Prairie
Not a mountain in sight
Vacationing in Denver
Was an extreme delight

We drove 400 miles to Denver
A city Oh so pristine
With mountains in the background
The streets were neat and clean

Spend time in Boulder
And Colorado Springs
Seeing those Majestic Mountains
Was the ultimate thing.

Balancing Rock
That giant Zoo
Dining at the Broadmoor Hotel
Was a nice thing to do.

The Aspen trees
With those colorful leaves
Was such a beautiful sight to see
For my family and me

How the car operated poorly
In the high altitude
No pep at all
Didnít run so good.

Will no longer visit Denver
No longer pure mountain air
The odor of marijuana
Will permeate the air

The city once pristine
Will no longer be clean
Younger kids will have access
Is this law passed in the name of progress?

Sales of Bongs and blunts
On every street in sight
Just so the potheads
Can smoke away the night.

I know this is my opinion
Iíve had my bout with alcohol
I was able to quit
Now I have no yen for it at all

To me drugs are the deterioration
Of our great Nation
Our once great country
Will go to Pot, Youíll see.
