A rich master entrusted his money, To a manager who squandered; Confronted the manager acted, On a plan that he pondered. He needed protection, From being put to shame, So he keenly made deals, Indebted to him people became. The master was pleased, At the shrewdness of this man; His threats had lit a fire,…
