'Rumors' - Poem by Bernard Snyder

They get started by certain people
that run their mouths without the facts,
they take a story they've overheard
and begin to add to it or subtract,
now the original story gets 'twisted'
and the believers are agitated
because the stories they've just been told
has been completely fabricated,
now everyone starts pointing fingers
placing the blame here and there,
when they all should've kept in mind
you can't believe everything you hear.

    Rumours in abundance. The stuff of rumours, and their ins and outs. We seem informed by a theme. Well done! (Report) Reply
