Continuing from this

He called his friend the tinker,
And the haberdasher, too,
And told them of his flaky plan
In terms of derring-do.

“I’m gonna rob the Stateville Trust,
That dirty, thieving bank!
A decimal mistake they made,
And wiped my savings blank!”

The tinker and the haberdasher,
they both were stunned, aghast!
The baker clearly must be stopped,
but who would ever da’st?

The baker spied their worried looks
and conk’d each on the head.
He said “I’m sorry but, you see,
I really need the bread!”

He locked them up down in the vault
where quite some time before
he’d taken time to offer wine
to old friend Montresor.

“Now the thing I really need
to lay hands to that kale
is an operative within the bank
before my plan goes stale.”

He got drunk with a rent-a-cop;
He flirted with a clerk;
The manager stood up their date;
“Oh, this will never work!”

And that’s all there is for now. 😀
