A whisper here, a snicker there
What harm could it do?
It's all good fun, there is no doubt
Except when it's about you

Be it skittering innuendo,
Practiced subtle disguise
No amount of goodness or truth
Can outrun bald faced lies

To guard one's tongue is quite a feat
If you are often the kind
To join in a cabal of callous deceit
And possess a poisonous mind

    Gossip...the people who are most likely to be a target are those who dare to be themselves and work hard on making their dreams come true..the ones who envy them often know no other way then to try and bring them down in this despicable way.

    Good poem, good wording and excellent subject, Corinne:)

    God bless,

    5/5 Ingrid

    Words can be so hurtful. Sad to say i have been there, and honestly , both sides. Not proud of that. This reminded me of mine called Rumors.
