Names Migrations. Sandy Flash and Castle Rock Visit Colorado Castle Rock

 Westward Ho the Names
Castle Rock East and West
Morph the Meaning

Castle Rock. Think Tank.
Colorado Coors, and Scaife,
Count money backers. *

The name had East roots.
Castle Rock, and Highwayman
Sandy Flash of old.

Newtown Square PA
Captured at the Widing farm. **
Whose then? Now a mall.

And hanged for his deeds.
Found under the feather bed!
Wee room o'er kitchen.

Staircase was still there,
Wound up behind the hearth.
A history, plowed.

But, soft! Highwaymen
West emerge with the name.
Long live self-int'rest!
