alfred packer went into the mountains
with his mining team.
they were looking for gold in the mountains
to be rich and happy.
they were lost while it snowed in the mountains
and met an indian chief.
the chief said, “there’s death in the mountains,
go back or death you’ll meet.”
alfred said, “there’s gold in the mountains.”
convinced his mining team.
they were starving walking in the mountains
with little food to eat.
in a trapper’s hut high in the mountains
their last meal they would eat.
when the men fell asleep in the mountains
alfred killed his mining team.
alfred searched the men in the mountains
and took all their money.
alfred sat and stared in the mountains
at his dead mining team.
he cut up the men in the mountains
for some food to eat.
found a town walking back from the mountains
and went to take a peek.
left the meat in the snow in the mountains
and off to town was he.
went to jail for his deeds in the mountains
and was finally released.
