Bright Prospects

While hope of a deal diminishes
the fear of catastrophe rises
but I'm sure that it'll be all right
when I read of new enterprises

The fact that Japanese desserts
made and sold by Vivien Wong
provide a turnover of £3million
a year, shows not much is wrong

Then we've a company named Bulb
determined to pursue its mission
to make everyone rethink energy
and to reduce carbon emission.

Rubies in Rubble is a new business
which offers us a savoury taste
making relishes from fruit and veg
that otherwise would go to waste

The Cambridge Satchel Company
has become an international cult
and the firm known as Pip and Nut
also achieved a satisfactory result.

Of course these business concerns
rely on backers and lots of support
so we must ensure that patronage
is accessible and doesn't fall short.
