7. Fit the Seventh: THE BANKER'S FATE
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care;
And the Banker, inspired with a courage so new
But while he was seeking with thimbles and care,
He offered large discount--he offered a check
Without rest or pause--while those frumious jaws
The Bandersnatch fled as the others appeared
He was black in the face, and they scarcely could trace
To the horror of all who were present that day.
Down he sank in a chair--ran his hands through his hair--
"Leave him here to his fate--it is getting so late!"
