Hear now of Blinken, stern and bold,
From Western lands, decisions told,
In Niger, coups with steel unfold,
The aiding hand may soon withhold.

Upon the Eastern isles of dawn,
A shift in fiscal plans is drawn,
The Bank of Japan, in light reborn,
Tolerates yields on bonds, new norms.

Biogen, with intent aflame,
By Odin's might, stakes mighty claim,
Reata's need, for gold exchanged,
In health's name, a fortune gained.
