A whisper can sound loud

Do not think when you whisper A gossip to a friend Your words will not Be heard And go around speaking wrong Of another person’s name Telling only those you think Can be trusted A little wind will Come blowing from nowhere And steal the words From your mouth without you Noticing Compose them into a song And sing it across the land And when it comes to greet The ears of those you were Trying to keep the words away from Their ear drums will amplify The music, exagarate the words And drum them so loud For all ears to hear And drum and drum and drum and the music will come back To haunt you While others seem to enjoy it It will sound like pollution To your ears, you The writer of the song Do not think What you tell your friends In a whispering voice Deriving fun out of other people’s Problems, laughing with all Your teeth out can never be heard Your words will clearly write Their message in black Against the whiteness of your teeth They will pronounce their meaning In your careless laughter

an intresting read about words that are often spoken not for all ears to hear, has a tendency to become hurtful to the parties in question. Thanks for the welcome back remarks! ^^,)

A very inventive poem, with some strong imagery--and a lesson to all who would gossip!
