Vice President Lai on journey long,
To Paraguay, with spirit strong.
In New York and San Fran he'll stay,
Defying China's chafe, 'gainst their dismay.

Hugo Boss, with savviness and guile,
Boosts outlook with a confident smile.
Strong quarter past, betters their foreseen,
Twenty-five percent growth, 'neath Asia's green.

Yet, Fresenius faces a rocky plight,
Earnings weaken as costs take flight.
Hospital woes bring a weary morn,
Yet dialysis yields a new day, reborn.
