Fit the Second : The Bellman’s speech

And appeared unaccountably shy.

The Beaver kept looking the opposite way,

Whenever the Butcher was by,

Yet still, ever after that sorrowful day,

And one Against Damage From Hail.

Two excellent Policies, one Against Fire,

(On moderate terms), or for sale,

By chronological order



The Hunting of the Snark

An Agony, in Eight Fits

Fit the First: The Landing.

As he landed his crew with care;

Supporting each man on the top of the tide

By a finger entwined in his hair.

“Just the place for a Snark!” I have said it twice:

“Just the place for a Snark!” the Bellman cried,

Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice:

That alone should encourage the crew.

What i tell you three times is true.”

The crew was complete: it included a Boots..

A maker of Bonnets and Hoods..

A Barrister, brought to arrange their disputes..

And a Broker, to value their goods.

A Billiard-maker, whose skill was immense,

Might perhaps have won more than his share..

But a Banker, engaged at enormous expense,

Had the whole of their cash in his care.

There was also a Beaver, that paced on the deck,

Or would sit making lace in the bow:

And had often (the Bellman said) saved them from wreck,

Though none of the sailors knew how.
