Dockless scooters: like 'em or hate 'em, they're everywhere these days, and are likely here to stay because tech companies refuse to stop "disrupting" the way we get around. While they can be fun for a quick whirl around town, they also go faster than some expect when they first hop on, which has led to many an accident. They've become such a problem that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention even announced the launch of a special study in Austin to evaluate the health risks of these two-wheeled menaces. That was the inspiration for this Typewriter Rodeo poem.

The Weather In Texas In The Fall

The sweater you wore to work has you sweating by the end of the day. Next morning, you're looking for a winter coat behind the tank tops in your closet. Yep, it's November in the Lone Star State.
