Typewriter Rodeo: What’s It Called? Hyperloop!

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

Imagine hurtling across Texas in a high-tech, high-speed vehicle. You cold get so much done, or just get there faster, all the while mocking those who are still stuck in highway traffic.

What’s It Called?


Wy you can reach top speeds faster than a jet

Soar across the ranchlands as you go

Catch a quick snooze but don’t settle in too deep

For we’re already arriving in Laredo


Just pop into a portal and await the next launch time

Dinner in Dallas, and Austin for dessert

Restock your shop in hours – the goods arrive in a flash

You’ll catch the hottest trends, the best new shirts


And the best part of the Texas Hyperloop?

It follow the paths you usually drive

So drink a pint of beer – you’re on a train, no feat

And laugh at the traffic along I-35
