350. the lettuce thinks

the lettuce thought, “yes, i am eaten by the tortoise, but i do not seem to mind. is this because i accept the inevitable circle of life that compels all that is born to die? is it because i understand that the tortoise is driven by the same forces that drive all of nature, and no more to blame for his actions than the wind? is it because i have come to a state of #zen and am beyond such selfish concerns? or is it because i’m a head of lettuce?”
