Gossip Girls November 1, 2009

Gossip girls, Gossip girls,

Motor mouths that rule the world

Spreading rumors with a whisper, into ears drop bitter pearls.

Harvesting their bitter pearls from the sea of other’s sorrows

Cast their nets today, for the bait they’ll use tomorrow.

Feasting on the misery from lives of other folks

Masking viciousness, with a wink, and twisted jokes.


When I decided not to gossip with you anymore

Forget the box… I opened up Pandora’s door!

To the closet where my skeletons and secrets kept,

A heavy lid on the past where my pain slept.

So then you spread all my business out there to the world.

Yeah I was hurt, but I knew you were a gossip girl.

You exposed my stuff wide screen for them all to see…

Flashed me your fake smile… what… now you’re my frienemy?

I’m getting smirks from co-workers that we used to Dog!

They treat me funny, like some kind of backside log.

They’re passing looks over cubicles with eyebrows raised

I know the deal, I used to do it, Man those were the days.

Those were the days when I was too afraid to tell you “STOP!”

Before an ugly word from your mouth was ever dropped,

About another and the struggles they were going through.

It ain’t my business, I’m doing me, they’re doing them, you should be doing you.

Not nosing around in the scent of other peoples lives…

“Child did you hear about the latest, and it ain’t no lie…

“He’s freaking him. She’s freaking her. They’re freaking both their wives!”

Now that’s some rotten stuff, it’s funky, and it’s sorry too.

I should have known better than to play that game with you.

The dog that brings a bone will ultimately snatch and crack,

A piece of your bone, and stab you with it in the back.

How can you pass all those judgments on your fellow man?

He’s on his hustle, trying to make it, doing the best he can.

You cop a “tude” when you see them riding their new whip,

Check your shoulder, that’s not dandruff, just a nasty chip!

A chip that WILL get knocked off, if you keep that gossip going.

What benefit is it to you, people’s business knowing?

And in the telling do you Honestly believe you’re spared?

The one you gossiped with, left you and your business shared.

Shared your struggles with another one who plays the game

One who gossips recklessly, pretends to feel no shame.

But late at night when sweet quiet soothes and calms the world

She regrets the day, that she became a gossip girl.

    Wow this poem is amazing. I write poetry myself, I have around 30-odd poems. I’m just contemplating whether to record my voice and post it online or just copy and paste the text over from my Facebook. Keep up the good work though!

      Thanks for stopping by and your encouraging words. I’m preparing to record and post some of my more intimate poetry as well. I say go for it!!! The world needs to hear our voice.

  2. First, I’d like to thank you for stopping by and posting such encouraging words on my blog. I enjoyed this poem tremendously. Some people just don’t realize the damage that can be done with the tongue-the words that come from our mouths can inflict more harm than any gun or knife. I can’t say I’m innocent, because I have participated in my share of gossip, but no more. Forget the food, sometimes a tongue-fast is the real fast God wants from us.

    Hi Robin

    An inspired piece,a lesson for those with vicious tongues!

  5. In the end, those who start gossip, end up being as avoided as their victims.

    Lots of people talk about this matter but you wrote down some true words.

    • robminx Says:

      Thanks Richard for stopping in and commenting. If we could all savour and place better value on our own business, other folks’ business won’t be as tempting to taste.
