Oh Piketty! Woe Piketty!
Inspiring such prolixity!
Who’d have thought his economics
Translated into fluent bollocks.
But all ideas fall at the hand
Of cultural icon, Russell Brand
Whose revolutionary attacks
Would reinvent corporate tax
At twenty pennies in the pound
(the rate today, as most have found).
Russ questioned whether the twin towers
Were struck down by Islamic powers
When interviewed by Evan Davies
(as part of book promotion favours)
And garnered unintended laughs
In shrinking back from Evan’s graphs.
Poor Russell’s worldwide “Revolution”
Seems much afflicted by confusion.
