The Pain of Canceled Television

This show is so great!
It’s a western with spaceships
Psychic assassins!

But people don’t want to watch
a show with Chinese cursing

This show is so great!
He wakes the dead with a touch
Pies, mysteries, and romance!

But people don’t want to watch
love stories without touching

This show is so great!
It’s high school in the 80s
But it feels like now

But people don’t want to watch
disco as a storyline

This show is so great!
Fights! Explosions! Guerrero!
Gun fights and gadgets!

But people don’t want to watch
awesome action shows I guess?

This show is so great!
It’s all about horse racing
jockeys and gambling

But people don’t want to watch
horses die on set. That’s fair.

This show is so great!
I fell in love with it fast
And then it was gone

It’s gone like dust in the wind
Like a fine mist in morning

This show is so great!
The network doesn’t care, though
They take what you love

Make it disappear for good
Art’s Bermuda Triangle

This show is so great!
Oh, does it make you happy?
the network will ask

You’re not allowed to love things
They say as they murder it

This show is so great!
Don’t get too attached
If you do it won’t last long

The harder you love a show
The more it hurts when it’s gone
