Harpoon of love was the big closing number of Dan Valienté's school play "The Revenge of Moby Dick".
The first public representation of the song was in March 2040.
In 2045, when Sally Linsay was exploring the Long Mars, she started singing this song as she witnessed from her glider groups of sand-whalers hunting land-dragons around one point five million steps East of Gap Mars.
In spring 2058, Joshua Valienté, who went to Earth West 389,413 to look for Sally, whistled this song as he approached her camp, hoping she would recognize it and not shoot him on sight.
