In lands afar where dragons dwell,
And fears of China's stats dispel,
The darkened oil doth bend and quell,
For hope's swift flight, none can foretell.

As Sterling rises, bold and free,
In RBC's sagacious decree,
To sell the Euro as they see,
Ere'r moves the BOE grand spree.

A wondrous deal hath Michelin sought,
With Flex Composite, dearly bought,
For 700 million wrought,
Shall earnings margin grace, they thought.
