Epigram for Wall Street (by Edgar Allan Poe, 1809 - 1849)


I'll tell you a plan for gaining wealth,
-----Better than banking, trade or leases —
Take a bank note and fold it up,
-----And then you will find your money in creases!
This wonderful plan, without danger or loss,
Keeps your cash in your hands, where nothing can trouble it;
And every time that you fold it across,
-----'Tis as plain as the light of the day that you double it!
--Evening Mirror (New York), January 23, 1845.


Wall Street, "Greed Is Good" (Michael Douglas)
