Great Investors!, New Billionaires!

“Oh Great Investors!, New Billionaires!,
You feel strong on account of your wealth
Ever worry about the price of your shares,
But they’re not a good measure of health.

Take more attention, is p’raps better advice,
Of the wider effects of your work,
For many believe, your self-centred greed
Is the tip of an iceberg of murk.”

Some do reflect their good fortune,
And recycle a bit of their worth
But most slink away, hiding ‘offshore’,
So, shit too, on the land of their birth.

“Of course, you belong to the Finest Elite”,
With some leaders, tarnished banners unfurled,
Use irresponsible power, and yet believe,
They are fooling the Rest of the World.

“No Guys, we are here, quite well aware,
Of the plots in your own self-cast play,
In a moment, off-stage, why not try to foresee,
The reviews on your own Judgement Day”
