Pop Culture Mashup – A Plea to Television Writers Everywhere

I’m sure that you feel
The death of your characters
To the harsh, unrelenting
Executive’s axe
Surely a new life
Awaits relocation
With only slight tweaking
To canon and facts?

Each of our heroes
Deserve more than three Acts!

On the Fringe we find Peter
Whose exceptional mind
Could well solve an American
Horror Story crime
Or give Elliot some Leverage
Sprouting righteous strong wings
As a cross over angel
In Supernatural’s time

With Sam, Dean and Castiel
A connection divine!

Should Jeff Winger’s zingers
Leave Community college
Or Abed and Troy’s
Morning show run aground
Then surely with Castle’s
Good humoured banter
Some natural pairings
Could yet be found

See clever pop references
Gleefully abound!

And what of Joss Whedon’s
Sci Fi bound cowboys
Who roam now unseen
On the great Firefly?
Surely that swagger
And talent with guns
Could help our dear Raylan
Keep all Justified?

We fans of these programs
Wear loyalty with pride!

The clever thief, Parker
Sophie, grifter sublime
Could fashion a new con
To help out the Arrow
In a fictional world
All it takes is a premise
And surely the canon
Cannot be that narrow

Our depth of devotion
Goes down to the marrow

Great beloved characters
Should still have a life
Not wait to unite
In a retirement band
Their spirits can still live
And gift us their talent
All they need is the writers
To give them a hand

Let’s call then, dear bloggers
United we stand!

No…really…I’m serious……
