NaPoWriMo #21: By the Time I Get to Arizona

Damn, Gov Brewer. What da hell happened? Who got it in your head that this would be a good idea?

Too many questions and too much anger and you best believe it’s going to get hotter in AZ before it’s all said and done.

The soundtrack for this song is a bit of departure but works for me.

By the Time I Get to Arizona
