Another Poem – Week Fourteen

I ran across this poem the other day and it keeps popping into my head.  It is about one of my least favorite things: gossip.  This was written around 1994.

It starts deep down

At the bottom of the city

Aint this a pity

With all the gritty

Gossip to be told

You tell on those you hate

You tell on those you behold

Why must it be this way?

Turning your back on who you love

To impress those who hate you

Gossip comes from the downtown beauty shops

From downtown it travels up

Spreading around like a nasty, old germ

Making the heads of uppity people turn

It attracts your attention

When you hear someone mention

A little piece of gossip

You know you need to stop it

Maybe one day gossip will stop

Because you need to lend an ear

To listen to all the gossip there is to hear.
