we set sail to go see the cyclops but we have to find a way to fake the crash.... oooohhhhhh right here "Old shipmates, friends, the rest of you stand by; I'll make the crossing in my own ship, with my own company, and find out what the mainland natives are"
" As we rowed on, and nearer to the mainland, at one end of the bay, we saw a carven yawning above the water, screened with laurel, and many rams and goats about the place inside a sheep fold".
" A prodigious man slept in this cave alone, and took his flocks to graze afield - remote from all companions, knowing none but savage ways, a brute so huge, he seemed noman at all of those who eat good wheaten bread: but he seemed rather a shaggy mountain reared in solutide".
" i told my men to stand by and keep watch over the ship; as for myself i took twelve of my best fighters and went ahead".
We climbed, then, briskly to the cave. But Cyclops had gone afield, to pasture his fat sheep" " strangers who are you ?" " one stride he clutched at my companions and beat their brains out then eat them for dinner". ( they couldnt get away because the bolder was to big for them to move and they are just to little)
"My moment was at hand, and i went forward holding a ivy bowl of dark drink". he striked him in the eye with a knife after he got him drunk then got him to move the bolder so they can leave.
