Upon ECB's figures, euro's fate to bind,
Inflation's forecast sway, it shall impart,
As arbiter of value in vast mart,
Commerzbank doth whisper in the wind.

Though metals sink and heed the Fed's decree,
In base and gold, a loss in Europe's strife,
More rate hikes loom within the mortal life,
Their patience pause, yet storms in distance see.

The Schatz of German yield soars high above,
As Mizuho claims the cycle nears its end,
In fading selloff, value doth amend,
EUR rates find solace, as a dove.
