Made For TV War

This is a made for TV war

Boldly announced to the world like the fall lineup of a major network

It's leaders… happy to tell us what was in store

The season premier was highly anticipated

Bomb blasts broadcasted in high definition

But even 1080i couldn't show us why

I wonder how the Nielson Corporation would have rated it

Reporters embedded with the troops

Producing sound bites and video loops

Showing the world death like it was scripted

Sometimes, even they were the guest stars

Stars in this made for TV war

Oil companies became corporate sponsors

Everyday Americans were glued to their TV's

The drama laid out and played out for our viewing pleasure

The cast traded in their Hummers for Humm-Vee's

Wild goose chases for a buried treasure

A treasure highly sought after in this made for TV war

The network execs praised each other for their "sweeps week" success

Laid out their marketing strategy to prepare for the next season

The show's mature content is what interest groups have tried to object

But they've continued to air this program by design and with no reason

No reason for this made for TV war

Folks can't wait for the series finale

When the curtain comes down and votes are finally tallied

We'll see just how many awards

Are handed out for this made for TV war
