SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN, by                    
First Line: I was afraid the rector / would go to law
Last Line: He didn't dare / take the money
Subject(s): Debt

I was afraid the rector
Would go to law
About that $490 I owed him,
But when I offered to pay it in several installments
Of seven dollars each
He didn't dare
Take the money.
