Upon data's whim, EUR/USD doth sway,
Banks with bated breath, to data bow,
Its volatile pulse, a minstrel's lay,
In market's ear, whispers low.

UBS and Credit Suisse, a union form,
Record profit reaped, to tune of twenty-nine,
An epic saga, in gold ink adorn,
In ledger books, their destinies entwine.

From Nippon's coast, the clarion call,
In face of looming China tensions rise,
An ample chest, with billions tall,
For long-neglected shield, the wise prize.
