And you know, don't you all,
that there is a town named
"Truth or Consequences"?

The television show of the same name ran a contest of some kind,
before I was born I believe.
The states in the Continental US,
their towns were eligible to enter,
and...i forget the conditions.

The winner was a town called Hot Springs New Mexico;
ever since then it has been
Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.
Mostly they grow poblano chiles down there,
on the banks of the Rio Grande.

And those who aren't in the know are utterly bewildered
by references to a New Mexico Town called

Tee or Cee,
written out "T or C",
which some people mistake for "Torc."

as in,
where the heck is Torc New Mexico??
