Everyone knows the familiar Texas city names: Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso. But if you look closer, you’ll find that our state has more than a few interesting points on the map. That was the inspiration for Typewriter Rodeo’s Sean Petrie as he wrote this week’s poem.
Best Town Names in Texas
So many towns in Texas
Their names simply rock!
The silent “a” of Manchaca
The timeless value, of Dime Box
Oh Flower Mound it conjures
Floral fields and hills so tall
(There’s very few of either
But no one wants to live, in Strip Mall)
The panhandle features Pampa
Where you’re pampered to the limit
And if you need to curse
All you have to yell is Dimmitt!
Then there’s Italy and Paris
With the lure of foreign fields
But ours aren’t fancy and falutin’
Like all our towns – they’re real.
