Deflated

A hot air balloon, in the shape of a red heart

Inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 6 November 2021, tumultuous.

A hot air balloonist from Splott
Asked his girlfriend ’bout tying the knot,
For decision tumultuous,
The waiting was tortuous,
’til at last, she said “Certainly not”!

Believe it or not, Splott is a real place, and it wasn’t anywhere near as bad as it sounds. When I was at university in Cardiff, it was considered one of the worst areas of the city, even by student standards, and I went out with someone who lived there.
