Yannis Negrepontis: World War Three

Peter, Johann, and Franz
Worked in a factory making tanks
Peter, Johann, and Franz
Became best friends while building tanks

Peter, Johann, and Franz
Worked for Braun, for Fischer, for Kraft
Braun, Fisher, and Kraft
Became best friends and merged in a trust

Peter, Johann, and Franz
Worked always carefree making tanks
They never read Marx
They knew nothing of mergers and crashes

Braun, Fisher, and Kraft
Split up to Braun, to Fischer, to Kraft
Braun, Fisher, and Kraft
Became enemies and broke down the trust

And before learning what Marx said
They were drafted to war
Peter, Johann, and Franz
Fell as heroes under the tanks

Braun, Fisher, and Kraft
Thought better and found the fault is with Marx
Braun, Fisher, and Kraft
United again and merged in a trust

(Τranslated by me from the Greek original, inspired by the Oct. 26, 2016 Bloomberg article “Globalization goes into reverse“.)
