In September's late measure, bond markets turned cold,
Eurozone's struggle leaves tales to be told.
A plunge in the prices, a bitter swoon,
Year-to-date performance hums a doleful tune.

Metro Bank's lifeline, a hefty sum gained,
From investors' pouch to balance retained.
Jaime Gilinski Bacal now holds the dome,
Whilst bondholders and shareholders feel the comb.

Brent Oil ascends in a rapturous dance,
Above a hundred, given the chance.
Amidst Eastern turmoil, price takes flight,
Iran's supply under a precarious knight.
