Gossip


torn apart by gossip
destroyed by half truths
the girls at school don't know me
but they act as if they do

they whisper and they giggle
as i walk down the halls
making school unliveable-
do they even care at all?

sometimes i think they must be right
maybe i am cheap
but all i feel about them
to their face i never speak.

keep silent and smile
is all i need to do.
to survive this high school drama
where friends are far and few.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
