Is That So?

Master Haquin was a very pure Buddhist.

One day, his neighbors accused him.
“You fathered our daughter’s baby.”

“Is that so?” Master Haquin replied.

He gained a baby to take care of,
and lost his reputation.

A year later,
The neighbors returned and offered him their deep-felt apologies.
They asked for the baby back.

Master Haquin offered the baby and replied,
“Is that so?”
