Ozyimandibus - The Collection

My younger brother Sean composes amusing poems chronicling his adventures on the Edmonton Transit system. The latest, about Sean capturing a precious seat on the ride home from work, was dubbed "Ozymandibus" by Sean's friend Jesse Jahrig. I quote it here:

Got the last bus chair 
look at my seat, ye standing
and despair, ha ha

This moment was the tipping point convincing me that Sean's transit-ory genius needs wider circulation.

I know that Sean has had some preliminary discussions about producing an illustrated collection of his bus poems with our friend and artist extraordinaire Jeff Shyluk, so in an effort to see that that actually happens, I hereby declare that I will pay happily for a copy of said book. If you, too, would like to see a collection of Sean's bus poetry accompanied by Jeff's serene/macabre art, comment below!

I think his poetry is brilliant. And I usually loathe poetry since being obligated to take it at university.
