From Atos firm, news doth unfurl,
A deal signed, in finance world whirl.
Talks of rescue now lie in ruin,
Onepoint's hopes, now desolation's boon.

In a land where drakes take wing and soar,
Luxury shares on market floor.
In China's maw, demand wanes thin,
Fades the allure of earthly sin.

Burberry's chief, cast out in the cold,
As company's woes, like tales of old.
Turnaround stalled, no dividend feast,
A fizzling effort, to say the least.
