Principles Of Trade - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

principle of trade
that which is in common supply
plentiful is worth less

principle of trade
that which is in gross over supply
extremely market over abundant
in excess maybe or is worthless

therefore sail to China
buy sell trade

fortunes there
to be risk made

find new
expansive markets

the common abundant
is worth less
the rare exceptional
infinitely more

yet great masters
of imagination in lands
of trade commerce
many remain poor

an artist of account
must tap vein supply
demand stamp coins
of silver screen desire
