From your friend Bob Overby
A picture speaks a thousand words – But this one speaks much more
For Scott is not your normal guy – He’s stubborn to the core
We were canoeing in the Boundary Waters – With two friends Greg and Mark
Who warned us about this Rapids – But in Scott it lit a spark!!
He said he wanted to see it – So to the rapids they led the way
Scott took a look and grinned – Saying “Bob, this is our lucky day”
We can beat this rapids – Come on lets stow our gear
And up the hill we marched – Two friends so cavalier!!
When Greg realized our folly – He started screaming out loud
“Bob, where’s your camera” – “In my bag, I shouted so proud”
You see, Mark and Greg were savvy – Because they’d made the run before
Crashing and burning severely – Barely making it to the shore!!
So with Scott in the rear – We launched our rented canoe
We’d barely started paddling – But already I had a clue
As you can see from the photo – Since I was sitting in the front
I was scared out of my wits – And this was really a crazy stunt!!
As I fell from the canoe – Trying to keep my feet pointed down
There was a big rock jutting up – Causing my face to get a frown
I managed to bounce with my shoulder – Letting out a giant grunt
Then I waited for Scott – Whose bright idea caused this stunt!!
At first he didn’t appear – But finally there he came
Then I heard that distinctive grunt – As he bounced off the rock without shame
But where was the canoe – It was no where to be found
We didn’t want it to slam us – But in retrospect, that might have been profound!!
Mark and Greg were yelling – But we couldn’t hear nary a word
The canoe was stuck under a rock – Which really was quite absurd
That’s when we started planning – Thinking back, I have to laugh
Four guys in a predicament – Lisa, Scott’s competiveness caused this gaffe!!
Suddenly the canoe let loose – And our hopes and dreams came true
So Leslie, I can only look and smile – Of the adventures that lay a head for you
But I raise my glass in a toast – To my friend Scott and Leslie his bride
May all your dreams come true – In your wild and crazy ride!!
