Gossip

My Name is Gossip

 

 

My name is Gossip.

 

I have no respect for justice.

 

I maim 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,

 

heartaches, and indigestion.

 

I make innocent people cry in their pillows.

 

even my name hisses.

 

I am called Gossip.

 

I make headlines and headaches.

 

Before you repeat a story, ask yourself:

 

Is it true? 

 

Is it harmless? 

 

Is it necessary?

 

If it isn't, don't repeat it.
