Modern Day Othellos

The stories folks can whisper into the ears of fellows,
when they are happy and mellow thinking of their
hearts' desire, if only to conspire and create animosity
with their loves,

Gossippers will put on their boxing gloves, spinning tales
of smut and gore, in order to create chaos galore,
until their minds are filled with arsenic and hatred
for the objects of their desire,

Modern Day Othellos are constantly surrounded by
evil gossip mongers who conspire to create mischief
and mayhem, relentless until they have ruined sacred
relationships and given innocent damsels a bad name.
