Purpose ‐ This poem aims to offer a concise representation of practised gender bias, in favour of the male, in business dealings, and to challenge that behaviour. Design/methodology/approach ‐ The poem takes a fictional form. Findings ‐ The poem emphasises the value of money as a symbol of power capable of overriding assumptions about the relative dominance of the male in business negotiations, together with assertive behaviour on the part of the female. Research limitations/implications ‐ The poem underlines and challenges the tendency of some men to assume that women have only limited control over wealth in the world of commerce. Originality/value ‐ The brief poem, rendered as an account in the first-person point-of-view, presents an encounter in which a chauvinistic environment must adjust to the reality that women necessarily perform an important financial role.
