    II. Lettuce
    Can you buy a warranty for a wasted life?
    What exactly is the return policy on souls?
    If I searched for answers in this desert called Earth
    Would I find anything but sand and empty spaces?
    If I looked forever through this world in all its primal recesses,
    In all its dark vegetation
    Would I come up with something more than a handful of lettuce leafs?
    They are cool and crisp as the break in my hands.
    Such is life.
    Lush and beautiful but only garnish.
    Fragile and crisp, easily broken.
    Filling and tasteless but with no real value.
    Such is life.
