Weather not in Alpha Beat’s favour

I saw a headline on the Irish Times website today and clicked into the story, only to discover it was a story about horse racing. This happens too often so I went looking for some more stories with interesting headlines and they have inspired some haikus.

And the moral? Don’t judge a news story by its headline, I guess.

Weather not in Alpha Beat’s favour
It’s pouring rain now
as the sound check starts up slow.
Fascination’s first.

Giving Phileas Fogg a run for his money with a TV remote
A strange kind of race,
Relayed through the medium
of small screen. Phil lost.

Strauss plays captain’s role with century
Composer takes the
Lead. One hundred solo years
laid bare before him.
