Hear now the woeful tale of the German Yield,
Struggling 'bove two-and-a-half, its destiny sealed.
In the absence of challenge from ECB rate,
It cannot above this threshold elevate.

Once mightful Nokia, used to countless victories,
Now forecast a drop in its annual treasuries.
With weakened demand for infrastructure and Lore,
Its profit margins are not what they were before.

But behold Ericsson, bearing losses slight,
Through a storm of torment, it revels in light.
With restructuring tempests weighing heavy and cruel,
Yet it rides into the future, serene and cool.
