UNREQUITED WORDS PRESENTS
Couldn’t Take a Penny With Me
A 50-word story on Money
Sir Wilbur Walker was the richest man in the UK. A shrewd investor, he caught on quickly on the wave of Tech stocks and made a killing off them.
“Married to my business,” he’d say, “of £35 billion.”
He was 80.
“Couldn’t take a penny with me,” read his epitaph.
