A boat crosses a river…
Another boat, this one empty,
is on a collision course with the first.
Even the most irritable man would fail to lose his temper!
But what if there was a boatman in the second boat?
The occupant of the first would shout, and yell, and holler
at the boatman in the attempt to avoid collision.
In the first scenario, no anger.
In the second, river-rage!
So it is with man.
If only he could pass through life empty,
who would there be to injure him?
