An Empty Boat…

 

*

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?
