Chilean copper miners create the Guggenheim museum
in a pseudo-philanthropic pre-modern age
of in denial, megalomaniac, evangelical, obsessives

The code words change in Fortunes’ pages to

structural adjustment,
hedge funds,
leveraged buyouts

as the Old Rich sneer
while Mr Jones voyeuristically reads
about rich lifestyles in manipulative glossy magazines

and politically ambitious media monsters
compete to rule the world
bored accumulating unearned capital and workers’ souls

Victory to the Chilean Miners. !
