In the market's tumult and the morrow's wake,
The FTSE 100 falteth, cautious heart at stake,
As central banks convene, futures to make,
Croda's decline, a somber reminder take.

A feeble greenback withers, brought low by claims,
Yet steadies at the nadir, where desire tames,
UniCredit foretells of a calm untamed,
Awaiting the Fed and ECB's fickle flames.

In distant lands, of China's vast empire's might,
A window opened, casting truth and light,
On kickback's siren call, a cunning blight,
Pioneering paths where resources' deals ignite.
