In the beginning…
Star-Boy went about the world
Defending people against their enemies.
Star-Boy was so strong…
He broke all bows of wood
And armed himself with a bone-bow
And a stone war-club.
Star-Boy came to a village of frogs
The Frog-Men poured out of their lodge to greet him.
They set before him food but no water.
“Whoever goes to the water, never returns,” said the Head Frog-Man.
“A great warrior lives there.”
“He has swallowed many of us alive.”
“So now, we thirst.”
Star-Boy, himself was thirsty after his meal.
He went down to the waterside and was swallowed by a Big Fish.
With his bone-knife he slashed at the gills of the Big Fish and cut his way out.
He went back to the Frog-Men and slung the fish carcass at their feet.
“You need thirst no more,” he said.
