Epigram For Wall Street - Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

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!

    It did not occur to me until now that by folding a banknote in two, you can double your money. I must try it.
    A sparkling, witty poem.

    I agree with Sandra. I didn't know the lighter side of Poe. For him:

    In cold of night
    In basement home
    Sits his darker side
    Waiting for the light

Epigram Poems

  1. Epigram

    Because I am idolotrous and have besought With grievous supplication and consuming prayer, The admirable image that my love has wrought Out of her swan's neck and her dark, abundant hair: The jealous gods who brook no worship save their own, Turned my live idol marble and her heart to stone.

  2. Epigram Engraved On The Collar Of A Dog Which I Gave To His Royal Highness

    I am his Highness' dog at Kew; Pray tell me, sir, whose dog are you?

  3. On Being Challenged To Write An Epigram In The Manner Of Herrick

    To Griggs, that learned man, in many a bygone session, His kids were his delight, and physics his profession; Now Griggs, grown old and glum, and less intent on knowledge, Physics himself at home, and sends his kids to college.

  4. ' Epigram 101 '

    To the Almighty Creator we believe with faith To Him we pray to merit us the better fate But if a strong, healthy person such so lazy Relies only from somebody to feed him if hungry To starvation if that person dies, that's total defeat And that's not Almighty Creator's given fate
