This is a true story, it happend in a coastal town in the south island of New Zealand, which is famous for its whale watching.
At a place called Kiakoura, the other day,
there was a thirty foot whale, in distress in the bay.
A crayfish pot, and rope, around the whales body was wrapped,
It struggled, and struggled, slowly its strength was being sapped.
So a group of men, out in a fishing boat went,
to see if they could help, before the whale was entirely spent.
