! Scandalous Rumors

Rating: 3.4

Scandalous rumors arrive, decked
in all shades colors, grey, black, blends of
multiple numerical games, wild, fierce,
timid snide, assail from
all corners, there build a rocky wall
design it sound proof, lock up
the gateway on a sturdy chain, fence it
again on laser beams, mend a close circuit
caution and there unwanted rumors not
sneak in and steal harmony.

Rumors are rumors and the effect they have can be destructive only if you believe. The way you have described rumors in short though exact words is really very nice.

And th' rabid wolf commeth in sheepskin...ivory pure...cotton soft...capturing eye's, ears and souls...And so, you must heed & beware the blanket of trust he will attempt to establish, in many spades and a plethora of masquerades....for if he should prevail...the scars that he will scathe upon you, shall be infectious, and hideously indelible...and you will die one-thousand Death's before your soul be raised in th' wake of his bite. Rema, You have succinctly, yet compendiously captured a very sad truism of life, and of our world, that we have all either fallen victim to, or that in fact we may ourselves be guilty of. A strange people we be, yes? .Excellent Work, as always, young lady! ~ F j R ~ ....Fini....

What an interesting theme and a great interpretation, Rema! I like the closing line very very much - the quintessence of the scandalous rumors! 10/10
