Bird on a Wire:
The Original Screenplay
I have no sympathy for his incessant whining
about his precious mangled screenplay.
It was a noirish masterpiece,
and they hired a witless hack to re-write it!
So? You dined out on it for decades!
Everyone on Earth has seen it on cable.
What are you bellyaching about?
Mourning lines lost
is intrinsic to the art of screenwriting.
