From Orient's land, a tale unfolds,
By China's hand, the world beholds.
A curbing of their metals rare,
Hath caused a wide-spread scare.

Singapore's vaults do spill out loss,
The stronger dollar a solid cross.
Her bank's excess is mopped on up,
'Tis a bitter draught in her fiscal cup.

And see the rise of China's might,
In Indonesia, day and night.
The nickel's king in electric carts,
From none to all, the industry starts.
