When subject is singular but predicate is plural
I may be using the word predicate incorrectly (as I forget a lot of grammar terms) but how would you say this sentence?
"A perfect metaphor for this is three rivers intertwining."
Using "is" just sounds wrong to me as I feel the need to say: "are three rivers..."
But it also sounds wrong to me to say: "A perfect metaphor are..."
