A woeful tale from Eurozone's choir,
Its economys flame doth dim and tire.
In services grand and forges' fire,
Below forecast, PMI's numbers retire.

Royal Philips, with scepter unsteady,
Though bright is its quarter, future heavy.
At Citi's court, the verdict ready:
A modest sum of gold, for its 2023 levy.

In Europe's realm, oil's glow recedes,
A whisper of caution in the reeds.
Bated breath for the council's decrees,
The Fed and ECB hold the future's keys.
