Opinion and the Grapevine
An Opinion blindly thinks, but
Boldly speaks out loud
Judgment of...Perspective on...
Doesn't matter to the crowd
As quick as it leaves the lips, it's retold with words anew
Snowballs fast, has bigger plans
For Opinion's point of view
Big Ears-Big Mouths pass it on
Reporting it; "As the truth!"
A small fish becoming a whale of a tale...
Without a single shred of proof
Hearsay tweaks the tale a bit; "Needs more drama"
"I can tell"
(Not a lie, just embellishment...The better buzz will sell)
A Little Birdie told me, in my ear
Chattering; "Listen to this" to a;
"That's what I heard!" Sheep
Following the flock, Baaabbling on
Nosy Parker Yakkety-yaks
Gossip climbs on the bandwagon, poisoning truth with little-known facts
Together they spread the Rumor
Through the grapevine, fruit gets ripe
Gossips peck 'til there's nothing left
Of 'Opinions Grapevine' flight
But soon, another Opinion speaks up..
Through the maze, to the Grapevine News
"Loose Lips Sinks Ship."
Aboard Gossip's Scuttlebutt Cruise!
