Wagging tongues can be unhealthy for you.

Careful what you say—

It may come back to haunt you some day.

Eyes that cut through you

And tongues that will thrash, too.

All too often many have said hurtful phrases

And for what?  There is no praise….

Only the harsh reality of what you say

Coming back to haunt you one day.

(c) 2007 George E Thompson

I gossip lots, wish I didn't can't help myself. With my friends at Bingo they all do it. Sometimes I have to defend the person they are talking about. We should not hurt our friends or people we love either. Sometimes it is irrelevant what we are even talking about them for and just to stir up trouble is sometimes why we talk about others.

A subject we are all guilty of. Wagging those words on the tip of a blade like tongue. Nice job George!
