Prologue

I thought this might be an appropriate prologue to steal from Ruth Moore: I once see a whale with a gold tooth , He riz right out of the sea. And opened his mouth in the morning sun, And showed that tooth to me . And once I was fishing the Deep Ground With nigh six pound of lead , And I caught a cod as big as a man , And he Had a man’s head . O there ain’t no end to what I’d tell, Once I was well begun ; Like seeing The Devil rise from the sea Instead of the morning sun ; Like sea-snakes lashing the moonlit sea , With their terrible lollopins , And the little mermaids with their diamond eyes And solid silver fins . For some have eyes to see strange sights , And such a one I be , But I ain’t known as a honest man , And nobody Harks To me .
