Success has always been valued,
But now the game is valuation.
Each new investor now comes in,
Paying for future expectations!
Who has seen a hundred billion,
A tiny slice of which each will own?
Do they think it’ll reach a trillion,
Pray, what’s it they know that I don’t?
Brick and mortar demands actual cash,
Money flowing in that you can see.
With firms that run on the web and Net,
Who has actually seen the money?
It’s price paid for world dominance,
Through services based in the cloud;
A position easily threatened,
By the next newborn upstart!
The pie is now so attractive,
That everyone wants a slice of it.
They’re paying to be in the party,
Each share’s a ticket, not investment!
