VICTIMS OF RUMOR “GOSSIP”


 


 


Nobody’ Friend


 


My name is Gossip. I have no respect for justice.


 


I claim without killing. I break hearts and ruin lives.


 


I am cunning and malicious and gather strength with age.


 


The more I am quoted the more I am believed.


 


My victims are helpless. They cannot protect themselves against me because I have no name and no face.


 


To track me down is impossible, the harder you try, the more elusive I become. I am nobody’s friend.


 


Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same.


 


I topple governments and wreck marriages.


 


I ruin careers and cause sleepless nights, heartache and indigestion.


 


I make innocent people cry in their pillows.


 


Even my name hisses. I am called Gossip. I make headlines and headaches.


 


So before you repeat a story ask yourself, is it true ? Is it fair? Is it necessary? If not, DON’T REPEAT IT.

Do I detest a gossip
I really do........
Reviewed by Ed Coet 7/8/2007
This does not meet an y poetic style that I'm aware of. It fits more in the "prose" catogry. Having said that, it's still an intresting read - any very ture.
