In the land of France, a pact is born,
Volvo, Renault with visage adorned,
CMA CGM makes a stance, in time to be sworn,
Electric steeds by 2024, so the heralds have warned.

With euro and sterling held firm in hand,
Dollar's rebound might rebuke this band,
The currency tides, as shifting as sand,
Vulnerability lurks, as per ING's command.

Oil stirs in morning's dim light,
Yet looms a loss, of an ample weight.
Inventories rise, triggering fright,
Brent and WTI face a fateful plight.
