LITTLE MUSHROOM AND THE END OF THE WORLD
One summer day at midnight, a little mushroom ran away from his house.
He ran away not because of the hatred to his parents
Yes his parents were annoying and demanding
But he ran because of another reason
He wanted to see the end of the world
Fascinated by the flat earth conspiracy theory, he wanted to see
Is the world a giant big ball or a large ceramic plate?
He ran day by day
Night by night
Until he arrived at the desert in Sahara
An endless desert
He stood there and said to himself, disappointed: "Maybe better for me if I die so I can fly around the world as a ghost"
Then he saw a fatamorgana "Hey little mushroom, come here and I shall give you what you desire"
The little mushroom then answered her, "I want to see the end of the world so I can prove whether the world is a giant big ball or a flat large ceramic plate"
The Fatamorgana laughed and said, "You just arrived at the end of the world there. You literally stood on it"
The little mushroom was confused "How come it is the end of the world, Fatamorgana? I still have an endless desert to cross and even though I cross it, I don't know how far more the end of the world is"
The Fatamorgana replied him, "The moment you decide to surrender to your defeat is the end of the world. After that the question about the shape of the world become non relevant anymore. Like the snow which perishes in the summer"
