Once the dollar's urge doth recede,
Metal rises high, follows nature's creed.
Goats to the trough, as market's decree,
In China's grasp, base metals decree.

In Zimbabwe's fields, cast the hare,
In election's cloak, wearied despair.
Four decades of dogs, their rule imbued,
In fearsome grip, the rabbit pursued.

Nvidia emerges, a lively pup,
Investors place bets, the stakes mount up.
In earnings' race, a snail's pace preferred,
But wildfire rally, has been inferred.
