And in showing differences, no?  "The plow plows the field" is not news.
I agree. It's the contrasts that make metaphors
interesting. There is a lot of resemblance between
prow and plough, it is the contrast of water and earth
that is dramatic and interesting.


While the farmer plowed his field,
His dedicated assistant
Plowed his daughter
Behind the barn.

Sounds like a song by Willie Nelson
