In an assortment of poems by Tex MoPac, this contemporary poet likens the experience of Texas highways travel to the famous rhymes of Lewis Carroll. Trafficwocky: Austin Traffic Poetry & Whatnot covers a variety of poetic images with haiku verse, whimsical interviews and even dramatic dialogue. References to such literary geniuses as Walt Whitman, Robert Frost and Dr. Seuss adorn the pages of this collection in a manner that is certain to inspire thoughts of childhood whimsy and delight as the reader identifies with MoPac’s literary knowledge. As the poet compares being stuck in traffic to a youngster finding himself without the distraction of modern technology, the short verse within these pages will definitely identify with the messages of impatience and time wasting activity.

This is a literary exercise in the extension of the childhood poem, The Jabberwocky. As Tex MoPac weaves his own personality into an age narrative, a more adult theme emerges with fun, off-color language and broken rhyme sure to gain more than a solitary chuckle. Although there are several memorable passages in Trafficwocky: Austin Traffic Poetry & Whatnot, I believe that Amazon Prime Customer Ships Himself From Pflugerville To Dripping Springs sums up the thoughts of the poet with “It’s much quicker than driving.” The enormity of the traffic problem in Austin city limits is well-defined in Journey Fan Stuck In Traffic Stops Believin’. “She had been looking for a new favorite band anyway.” Tex MoPac provides a light-hearted look at the perils of city transmute.


This is truly the funniest and truest book I've ever read. I recommend this to all readers who like to relate to someone on the road. If you've ever felt even a moment of traffic annoyance, then this is a book for you!
