The song of Sun Valley


THE annual ‘summer camp’ conference of the world’s ultra-rich has been held at the Sun Valley mountain resort in the US state of Idaho, with attendees arriving in their private jets to pontificate about global warming and other issues . . . .  

Hello mother, this is Sally,
Here I am at Camp Sun Valley.
Camp is very entertaining,
A fun-packed fest of virtue-feigning  

We’re all moguls, movers, shakers
Oligarchs and empire-makers
Posing, preening, every minute
To show the world we’re rolling in it  

We don’t welcome non-Forbes Listers
Even if they’ve gold that glisters
We laugh at upstarts worth a billion
You’re a pauper here unless you’ve got a zillion  

I met an analyst over dinner
He said pork futures were a winner
I invested, stocks went scudding
I made a million before I’d ordered pudding  

On his Learjet, Bill Gates flew in
Fumes and greenhouse gases spewin’
Then with straight face and a brass neck
He told the plebs to keep pollution in check  

All we tycoons hate the poor folk,
Climate change is just our woke joke
Save the planet? They don’t get it
We’re gonna take the world and we’ll reset it  

I won’t be home, your dear Sally
I won’t be home, I love Sun Valley
Leave me here, it’s very healthy
Leave me here among the wealthy  

Wait a minute, someone’s wailing
A howling mob has breached the railing
Kill the capitalists, I hear a wolf-scream
Sorry mother, but I’m heading for my Gulfstream.
