Last quarter’s Sales were better than before;
     Thanks be to Perfumes, Lipstick, and the Like;
Our Forecast, optimistic: Profits more
     Than those of prior Quarter’s Sales Spike.

The overseas Divisions send Report;
     A story of Net Income past Compare;
And Earnings fuel’d by Products of the Sort
     That may be worn on Skin or in the Hair.

The economic Downturn’s ill Effects
     Have little Impact, as we know quite well,
Upon th’Attraction that the Fairer Sex
     Enhanceth with an Artificial Smell.

The Auditors state that our Reck’ning’s good;
     Now go and vote your Proxy as we would.
