Invite Me To Your Con

by Mark Osier

By now you've listened to me play a bit on my guitar 

And sing for you a few songs that I wrote

I can write them overnight or even on demand

And will if given the chance to do so

I have been known to teach a workshop on swing dancing

Even beginners twirling round and round

So as you organize your con consider who you'd like to have around

I'm not saying that your con will suck without me

You'll have big-name guests and panels - you might even have a dance

But every program grid has a few unexpected holes

SO I'm asking you - can you afford to take that chance?

You'll only have a couple days and then it is all gone

So hedge your bets and invite me to your con

I've learned how to do art shows also con security

I proudly bear the title of Dorsai

Inside your anime room I can tell you which is which

When you're talking about ecchi or hentai

I started D&D when it all came in one box

And I play Carcassone on my phone

My XBox gamer score would suggest that I don't often leave my home

I'm not saying that your con will suck without me

You'll have big-name guests and panels - you might even have a dance

But every program grid has a few unexpected holes

SO I'm asking you - can you afford to take that chance?

You'll only have a couple days and then it is all gone

So hedge your bets and invite me to your con

Because I've been a toastmaster as well as auctioneer

I can step in if your MC should fall ill

My PhD in Toxicology means Science Guest

Is yet another role that I can fill

By now I hope you've realized that I'm the guy you need

I'm value added just by being there

So if you need someone to bring the awesome

You just tell me when and where

I'm not saying that your con will suck without me

You'll have big-name guests and panels - you might even have a dance

But every program grid has a few unexpected holes

SO I'm asking you - can you afford to take that chance?

You'll only have a couple days and then it is all gone

So hedge your bets and invite me to your con

Hey, don't suck - just invite me to your con!

Thank you to the ConCom for listening.
