Description in a few words about the root of one of the most basic interactions in human nature.

The Trade

One hand extends in search for the other
As the second reaches out to the potential partner
In what would be a deal dealt by dealers
Dealing over a contract deciding who will be the receiver
Of which benefit and how much and when and where
And how if the contract was broken who would bare
The responsibility of paying back and how that’d be done
With the appropriate amount of money in a formal sum,

But before the two hands confidently connect
One of them pauses to think and reflect
On e last time about the value of trade
And how one person in an exchange must persuade
The other of the importance in conducting this business
Among businesspeople who seek to gain status and riches
And hopefully keep in mind their largest, natural client
Known as Gaia and Mother Nature and all life in the environment,

Now uncertainties and frailties and insecurities removed
The two businessmen shake hands acknowledging approval
Of their agreement and of the universal human principle
That trade involves value for value, useful for useful.
