Sea Shanty
unknown

Whalers sing a song
 1
of the harpoon
 2
and its barbs.
 3
 
 
They sing of whales
 4
rolling in the water
 5
like crocodiles do
 6
 
 
when tearing their prey
 7
to pieces;
 8
 
 
and how the rolling
 9
drains the blood
 10
from spout holes,
 11
 
 
from eyes
 12
and great tail fins.
 13
 
 
The whales buck too
 14
they sing,
 15
like unbroken horses;
 16
 
 
they buck to break
 17
the iron rod free
 18
from their bodies
 19
 
 
and to break the rope
 20
attaching the rod
 21
to the boat,  
 22
 
 
they drag behind them.
