Some thoughts on the Balloon Boy story

"Our little boy has gone a-flying,"
The parents of Falcon said crying.
A world watched aghast,
The balloon flying past,
But then there were claims they were lying!

As TV shows pander to voyeurs,
And show contents become destroyers,
Of ethics, for fame,
Folks like these make a game,
Out of everything - Winners? Their lawyers!

  1. hai hawa ka ye purana dastoor
    le jaati hai sabko kitni door
    publicity ka junoon
    dikha gaya khaali balloon
    kya kartey? hain aadat se majboor!
