In no time, it seems, a mail
is sent once around the earth.
Fast as lightning it can sail
thrice the distance of its girth.
But one phrase is plainly wrong:
time is certainly not money.
Time is unconstrained and strong,
were it money ‘t would be funny.
Money serves as an invention
to make trade a world-wide show.
Brokers see with apprehension
how time runs and assets go.
