Hello, my name is Gossip
allow me to introduce
exactly what I am
exactly what i can do

I slip out of mouths
as a venomous whisper
caution: I'm a highly
destructive verbal weapon
my words are poisonous,
dangerous, contagious
as they spread in milliseconds
to those with curious ears
I derive from a mind,
a shallow puddle,
with intention to drown
innocent mortal hearts
I start with a truth
and twist it like a vine
and before you can stop me
I'm a whole different story
you can find me everywhere:
offices, homes,
schools, malls,
the bench in central park,
over coffee and tea,
dinner and parties,
in newspapers on the street,
on Hollywood TV
I can destroy a marriage
destroy an occupation
destroy a reputation
destroy every victim

Hello, my name is Gossip,
you now know who I am
So tell me, what's you name?
Allow me to ruin it
