Satire Sunday: He's Really Sorry

Reed Martin is the one we have to thank
For killing his entire industry.
His notion seemed like money in the bank
At first: While product placement on TV
And in the movies was the oldest hat,
Collecting fees for placement within spots
For other products took off just like that!
The Popcorn Council's revenues were hot
Once microwave corn showed up in each ad
For satellite or cable, then Kind Bud
In all fast food promotions. Soon the bad
And complex consequences made a dud
Of Reed's idea. Everyone's in court
Disputing over billings -- the new sport.
