Tour Poetry Day 3: Kit Carson and the Death of Jim Halling

My friend Jim died yesterday
I found out in a Mexican restaurant
On the way to Taos
Between the chips and salsa
And the combo plate
Surprise!
In Taos one can find the grave
Of Kit Carson
One time a few members of Carson’s party
Were killed by Indians
To return the favor
He went on a murderous  revenge rampage
Killing every Indian in the area
Guess what? Wrong Indians
Surprise!
Hey Jim, the strange comedy of life
Keeps spinning
So glad you got to be a part of my comedy
For a little while
Truly, dearly
R.I.P Brother…
