Writers Strike

With the whole screen writers strike I thought it would be the perfect occasion for a parody. Let's use the Gilligan's Island theme for this one.

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful strike
They wanted their fair share of pie
AMPTP said “take a hike”

The WGA was a mighty union though
They’d done this thing before
They went on strike for 22 weeks back in ‘88
While reruns made us snore

Then both sides started getting rough
And walking out on talks
AMPTP scheduled reality shows
WGA lined picketer for blocks

The deal’s now on the ground of this uncharted debacle
with WGA
the AMPTP too
The executive millionaire and his wife
The movie star
The gaffers and the other staff
All impacted in the Writers Strike trial

So this is the tale of those without pay
They’ll be there for a long, long time
They’ll have to make the best of things
It’s an uphill climb
