Upon BMW's wheel, joy does surely cast,
Its orders bloom like doe-eyed rabbits fast.
Though Europe's share treads lightly as a snail,
The double digit climb tells not a tale of past.

As keeper of the vine, Italy takes a stance,
Its bonds consolidate, a sprightly dance.
Not unlike a giddy goat at play,
In Eurozone, its gains enhance.

Behold, the squirrel trades his nut so dear,
So Nestle parts with allergy frontier.
Its business, akin to a loyal hound,
Now stands 'neath Stallergenes Greer's cavalier.
