Hungry child— ‎
I didn’t make this world for you. ‎
You didn’t buy any stock in my railroad, ‎
You didn’t invest in my corporation. ‎
Where are your shares in BHP? (*)
I made the world for the rich ‎
And the will-be-rich ‎
And the have-always been rich. ‎
Not for you ‎
Hungry Child. ‎
(*) BHP Billiton è la più grande multinazionale al mondo nel settore dell’estrazione delle risorse ‎naturali.‎

JUMALA PUHUU NÄLKÄISELLE LAPSELLE

Nälkäinen lapsi,
en tehnyt tätä maailmaa sinulle.
Et ostanut rautateitteni osakkeita
etkä liioin sijoittanut yhtiööni.
Missä ovat sinun BHP-osakkeesi? *
Tein maailman rikkaita varten,
huomispäivän rikkaita varten
ja niitä varten, jotka ovat aina olleet rikkaita.
En tehnyt sitä sinulle,
nälkäinen lapsi.

* ) BHP on maailman suurin kaivosyhtiö.
