Friday Haiku - Much Ado

Haiku Friday


Much ado about
nothing, an afternoon of
mild consternation.

Falcon was always home,
never in the runaway
silvery balloon.

Hiding from his Dad
in the garage's attic.
I am glad he's safe.

Publicity stunt?
Maybe so. But remember,
"The Boy Who Cried Wolf".

Yes, we are all happy about a happy ending, but if the father has a screw loose, it may not be a happy ending next time.

All is well that ends well. I'm glad he's safe.
I had to Google this to read the whole story. ;-)

it was a diversion to mask the fact that the balloon looked like a flying saucer he didn;t want to get into trouble for impersonating an ET.

That was quite a story yesterday. I'm glad the boy was fine, but I bet he's in a lot of trouble today. I will also wager, this isn't the end of the story.

Glad for the happy ending! Hope you have a great weekend!

I had to Google the story too. I had no idea!
I'm glad the little one is safe. But I am also curious if it was a publicity stunt.

That is one crazy story. I caught snippets about it as it was happening. It sounded fishy from the get-go. I'm glad the kid's okay, but something needs to be done about the dad.

A well written Haiku "ripped from the headlines". All I can do about this whole thing is shake my head and wonder why - why - why on many levels.

You know how close that was to my house? Yeah, it was all kinds of dramatic! I won't tell you what I think.

What a screwed up mess. Well written haiku.

I've seen the story in the newspaper her, but they got it all wrong.

I miss you, you don't answer your comments any more. I always come back to check, but lately ... :-(

What a nutjob, that dad. Incredible; that he would waste the time and resources of hundreds of people like that. Shame on him for that and the lesson I hope his kids learned. I hope he has to pay for that.
