Profit me, Hermes!

by F.L. Light

Proficere in Latin means to go forward, and in pursuit of profit to the fore Fred Light goes with 1121 couplets as rhythmic as the prosperous esprit of commerce and finance. Profit is envisioned as the best fruition and revealed to bring the earthly rapture of success.

Profit to readers in profusion is
No less than opulent in sentences.
This book the busiest happiness reveals,
Which every profit-worthy maker feels.

Profit me, Hermes, disillusionments
Providing where illusions make events.

Prompt leaps of profit, rapid Hermes! Far
More joy provoking where the fastest are!

And follows Hermes’ profitable moves.

Resuscitating animosity,
Resolve with Hermes on ascendancy.

Lest my adventures founder in extremes.

From laggards overcome a sluggish mart.

In concord with accepted presages.

Of semblant fortune, if you’d set me right.

Embodied, meant to follow nature’s plan.

And for my trades directive omens bring.

Not breaking from the gods’ portentous moves.

Than Hermes dashing, seizes on success.

Profit me, Hermes, no unfathomable
Allusions bringing in an oracle.

With profitable Hermes will proceed.

Profit me, Hermes, with suspicions fit
To grasp before occasion is unknit.

Where business rises, profiting no end.

Profit me, Hermes, with enigmas meant
For comprehension in an exigent.
