ARIZONA by: Charlie Owen Brown










Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.
~Plato (429-347 BC)



by: Charlie Owen Brown


How it was made and Who made it


The Land that God Forgot

The Devil was given permission one day

To select him a land for his own special sway;


So he hunted around for a month or more

Ad fussed and fumed and terribly swore,

But at last was delighted a country to view

where the prickly pears and mesquite grew.

With a survey brief, without further excuse,

He took his stand on the banks of the Santa



He saw there was some improvement to make,

For he felt his own reputation was at stake.

And an idea struck him-he swore by his horns,

to make a complete vegetation of thorns.

He studded the land with the prickly pears

And scattered the cactus everywhere.

The Spanish dagger, sharp pointed and tall,

And last the cholla the worst of all.


He imported Apaches direct from Hell,

And the ranks of his sweet scented train to


A legion of skunks, whose loud, loud smell

Perfumed the county he loved so well.

And then for his life be could not see why

–         The river should carry even water supply.

     And he swore if he gave it another drop

      You might take his head and his horns for a mop.

     He filled the river with sand till it was almost

And promised himself on its slimy brink.

    The control of all who from it shall drink.

He saw there was one more improvement to make,

     He imported the scorpion, tarantula, and rattlesnake,

     That all who might come to this country to dwell

Would be sure to think it was almost like Hell.


He fixed the heat at one hundred and seven,

And banished forever the moisture from heaven.

But remembered as he heard his furnace roar,

That the heat might reach five hundred or more.

And after he fixed things so thorny and well,

He said “I’ll be damned if this don’t beat Hell.”

Then he flapped his wings and away he flew

And vanished from earth in a blaze of blue.


And now, no doubt, in some corner of Hell

He gloats over the work he had done so wall,

And vows that Arizona cannot be beat

For Scorpion, tarantulas, snakes, and heat.

For his own realm compares so well

He feels assured it surpasses Hell.


Charle Owen Brown was born in October,

1829 and died Aug. 13, 1908.  He came to the

Arizona Territory in the latter part of the 19th

Century and owned the Congress Saloon in

Tucson around the turn of the century.
