O Conman! My Conman! Sick Rhymes for Sick Times is the freshest poetry collection since Emily Dickinson's Collected Poems went through the author's wash. From poems about Kinkos, mom jeans and foggy glasses to "dis track" poems about Romeo, commencement speakers and the Child-Left-Behind-in-Chief, this "work of genius" (Dan's Mom Review) is rife with puckishness, passion for justice and poetic prowess (or was that poetic cowardice?). For the past ten years, rather than work on his career or try to find a home that was not above a hair salon, Daniel Sennis has meticulously crafted poems like "Accordeus: Legend of I-95," "Summer is Gross" and "The Mostly Polite Sub Who Shot out of the Classroom Like a Rocket." And all for you, lucky reader (as well as to momentarily escape the demons in his head). This collection will entertain, inspire, provoke and dazzle--or, at the very least, stabilize wobbly furniture.
About the Author
Daniel Sennis is America's most attractive writer (clearly). As a child, he was bitten by a poetry bug and he contracted rhyme disease. Since then, rather than advance his career or discern how to properly shave, he has devoted his time to crafting poems about mom jeans and foggy glasses. He is an open mic night hero, occasional rapper, cargo pants enthusiast and champion mall walker. He lives with his unfortunate wife and son in Rochester, New York. More of his ridiculousness can be found at danielsennis.blogspot.com and centralnanews.weebly.com.
