I Heard That

October 21, 2019

 "Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips
and spreads slander is a fool."

—Proverbs 10:18


We whistle the wanton wind
And once unfurled,
There’s no going back
To a world before gossip.
Tongues wag and flap with ease
In the envious, polluted breeze
Like flags at half-mast.
And even some bystanders below
Salute the contagious rumors—
That fester and blister the soul,
Malignant and blind as tumors.
And so the disease spreads
Like mold behind a shelf.
Morticians, examine your dead.
And physicians, heal yourself.
