What did I sell to them?

“Don’t believe what a businessman says as well as a politician.” My boss was standing next to my working desk, holding his cup of espresso and commenting on the recent news of Mr. President.

“You’re a businessman but you’re my boss. And I believe what my boss says.” I smiled and replied.

“Businessmen and politicians are just buying what they want from the poor and benefiting the rich.”

“Then, what did the poor sell to them?” I asked.

“You’ve sold something to them but you don’t know what you’ve sold, do you?” He asked.

“Information and privacy?” I guessed.

“When the rich make war, it’s the poor that die.” He said but he didn’t answer me straight.

“Patriotism?” I guessed again.

He smiled at me and drank his cup of coffee.

What a strange boss.
