Tour Poetry Day 2: New Mexico

I saw the location today
Of where they set off
The first atomic bomb
It killed all life there
For a hundred years or more
Or so I am told
Yet they have a law here
Where you can’t carry
Two beers at a time in a bar
Apparently they don’t want you
Taking to the highway
Hopped up like a werewolf
Glad someone is looking out for me
