Fish it out with a pocket-knife; No te oonu i te vaarua ki roto, kua tiki aia i te rakau roa ei ikaro mai i te unga ki vao. Because the hole went deep inside, he got a long stick to winkle out the crab; Kua roa tona ikaroanga i taua mea ra, e kare rai i rauka. He spent a long time trying to fish it out, but he couldn’t get it; E mimiti aai maoa teia, kare ua te nga mata kua ikaroa. Here is a cooked tuna head, there are no eyes, they’ve been gouged out.
