658. Look at their stubbornness

Look at this stubborn shore!
It refuses to receive my boat.

Look at this stubborn boat!
It refuses to be a little more
Devoted to the shore.

Look at these stubborn passengers!
They just refuse to thank
The boat and shake hands with the shore.

Alas, I am lost in the confusion
Of indifference-sea.
