Of China's rebuff, a tale I sing,
To Pentagon's chief, a rapproch_sent thwing,
Lord Austin sought, but met disdain,
From Li Shangfu, discord doth remain.

Upon dark deeds, a fine bestowed,
Crown Resorts with heavy gold unrobed,
A sum of A$450 million weighs,
For breaches past, amend they must their ways.

Now Daimler Truck and Toyota's might,
Their wings entwined, to soar new heights,
Mitsubishi Fuso and Hino blend,
In Tokyo's list, their names ascend.
