A jeweler has to purchase the supplies
that serve to make the works that must be sold,
and if he’s prudent, conscientious, wise,
he pays attention to the price of gold.
What’s more, if he’s experienced or smart,
he’ll buy some Futures of the yellow stuff.
He’ll save on inventory, or take part
in market gains – he’ll always fare enough.
And if it’s revolution that’s your goal,
if you’d invert the world and share the rights,
I counsel you to ponder and invest
in broad-based funds. There’s much you can’t control,
but hedging means you’ll either dwell in heights
of social fairness, or live income-blessed.
