Old Sailor Tattoo

“‘Tis the beast he is, this Wolf Larsen — the great big beast mentioned iv in Revelation; an’ no good end will he ever come to. But I’ve said nothin’ to ye, mind ye. I’ve whispered never a word; for old fat Louis’ll live the voyage out if the last mother’s son of yez go to the fishes’…’Wolf Larsen!’ he snorted a moment later. ‘Listen to the word, will ye! Wolf — ’tis what he is. He’s not black-hearted like some men. ‘Tis no heart he has at all. Wolf, just wolf, ’tis what he is. D’ye wonder he’s well named?'”
