570. chaos rains

water poured down on the village, soaking the tortoise and the sunflower alike. some villagers said, “we do not like the rain, for it ruins our picnics!” whereas others cried out, “thank you for the rain, for it nourishes our crops.”

but the rain did not hear their thanks or their complaints. it only rained.

you can complain about the rain, but the rain remains.
