On Berkeley's path where profit's tide abounds,
Though bleak this year, their outlook tightly wound.
Yet lower lies the sum of sales profound,
In private lands, a loss of strength is found.

The noble euro rises, firm and true,
Whilst dollar weak, with sullen face is viewed.
For ECB's rate might foster new,
And Fed's own choice leaves market mood subdued.

BMW commend we do, with gold-tipped pen,
For their sagacious plan, we laud again.
In realms of engines both old and zen,
Balanced they stand, the sagest craftsman's den.
