Hear, O wise ones, the tale of CVC's might,
In Amsterdam's halls, it seeks precious light.
In golden standards, sixteen billion in claim,
An IPO quest, in the trading game.

Behold, Fair Italy, noble in bond,
Its BBB rating, a sturdy frond.
'Bove German Bunds, it holds its gaze,
In early trade, an emblem ablaze.

In distant China, where dragons dwell,
Tesla, Li Auto, in price war's hell.
They lower the tag, as chariots spark,
In battle electric, far from traditional arc.
