E.ON, fair merchant of light and heat,
Warns of a cut in their earnings neat.
"A price reduction for gas and flame,
Yet our investment plans stand the same."

Swift be the changes in bonds so grand,
Eurozone markets like shifting sand.
As year's end looms, liquidity shrinks,
Unsteady footing on which one thinks.

Farmer Bill of the Bayer domain,
Rules o'er crops and health with steady rein.
He ponders division, to split or not,
Yet, three parts from one he would fain allot.
