Re: …“a boat is just a hole in the water into which you pour money.”
I live in a U.S. coastal State, and also REAL close to a large river. Ownership of even the smallest of boats seems to be a major rite-of-passage/acceptable proof of masculinity exhibit (…real men catch fish???).
So here, it’s common knowledge that the two happiest days in a boat-owner’s life are, the day he buys the boat, and the day he sells it…
Anyway, the model depicted above inspired me to write this poem:
I bought a boat, to take you out,
to scout a fishing hole.
So climb on deck, you lounge about,
I’ll cast my favorite pole.
