1Can you lift out the whale with a gaff or slip a noose round its tongue? 2Can you pass a rope through its nose or pierce its jaw with a hook? 3Will it take to pleading with you for mercy or beg for its life with soft words? 4Will it enter into an agreement with you to become your slave for life? 5Will you toy with it as with a bird or keep it on a leash for your girls? 6Do partners in the fishing haggle over it or merchants share it out?
