Lieth Handelsbanken 'gainst profit's rise,
Yet halt does whale of economy's prize,
Interest in sky, volumes in demise,
The rabbit in its burrow, no surprise.

Next, Volvo, sturdy steed of steel,
Sees lessened market, softens its deal,
Like goats on mountain's peak do feel,
Fall of orders makes the future real.

Last, U.K., in monetary pleas,
Holds inflation, like snail 'gainst seas.
The hawk, BOE, in anxious breeze,
Aims to tame the wind among the trees.
