The balloon seller, walked down his usual paths, selling his wares, in his usual way.
“Get these balloons for the good children
And not for those, who break stuff and away run.
Come ye. Come all. Get these balloons from me
and gift it to your boys and girls who have a good story”
And his usual way, unfortunately for the parents, was by schools and parks. On hearing his song, the children would look at them for a judgement of behaviour. And in order to pacify them, the fathers and mothers would buy balloons for the boys and girls.
The son of the balloon maker, who walked alongside with the entrepreneur, looked up at his father, hoping that atleast today, he had behaved good enough to get a balloon for himself.
