to the fullest extent; a stout eight
foot spar of tough timber, four
inches by four in cross-measure

rope leading from the ends of the
spar is drawn close and tightened
with a clove hitch around the fish's
tall, behind the wide tail flukes

The clamp of the cruel jaws
drives the two-inch-long teeth deep
into the tough spar. The tight line
holds it in place, and, struggle as

his knife blade across the shark's
eyeballs and let him go.
Bitted, and bridled, blinded,
with jaws wide-gaping, he swam
through a limitless sea in neverend-

scores, the sailor pays it to the full
