Love is like a speedboat, threatening disaster
as we plummet toward our fate, going ever faster.
In youth, insecurity helps to fuel the pace
as our fear of failure keeps us in the race.
Thus is our pursuit of love fueled by the chase,
but as we proceed in life, this may not be the case.
Our boats fill up with children and the race soon ceases.
The boards begin to shrink and paint curls off in pieces.
Still, since marriage is a boat we need to keep afloat,
love is our incentive to renovate the boat!
