O Burberry, thou art like a jug of ale
That hath fermented well, thine sales accrued
In line with hopes, and yet thou dost not fail,
To hold thy venture's course, full-year viewed.

The Swedish krona, akin to grape so sour,
Did suffer losses sharp and felt affray,
But like strong wine, hath gained in recent hour,
A fleeting gleam of hope, says good SEB.

Just as the tavern close, ere drunkards part,
Nikkei did slip, by auto, stocks retail,
Like spilt mead causeth sorrow to the heart,
Thus Fed's fall and USD/JPY travail.
