Typewriter Rodeo: How Long Until Spring?

Each week, the Standard reaches out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem on Texas topics.

It’s been a cold and occasionally snowy winter in the Lone Star State and we’re all eager to go back outdoors.


How Long Until Spring?

winter break has come and gone

spring’s is far away

these are the weeks that stretch and grind

day after endless day

some implanted magnet

down inside your desk

draws your head down, constantly

all you want’s to rest

but education marches on

it is sad but true

conveyed by weary teachers

just as tired as you

by the time the bell rings

at the end of the day

all are drained, the students

much too tired to play

even a little bit

of their favorite



(well maybe just a little)
