A Poem By Cowboy Wordsmith

Old Cowboys, Old Hippies, love Ocean Beach
Because it helps keep memories within reach

Neighborhoods of old houses, family businesses downtown
Only just a few Multinational Corporations hanging around

No Multistory Multinational building where Winston’s is now
Let me help if your curious an might wonder just why an how

July Fourth 2013 marks One Hundred Years
Since WONDERLAND opened in OB to cheers

Had Big Money Guys not liked Balboa Park better
A FLOOD in 1916 make WONDERLAND wetter

Who is to say OB might not today be
San Diego’s little Anaheim by the sea

So all of us Old Cowboys, Old Hippies just have to thank
That 1916 Rainmaker, who helped WONDERLAND tank
