NO FRIEND AT ALL

by:
Author Unknown

My name is Gossip.
I have no respect for justice.

I maim without killing.
I break hearts and ruin lives.

I am cunning and malicious
and gather strength with age.

The more I am quoted,
the more I am believed.

My victims are helpless.
They cannot protect themselves against me
because I have no name or face.

To track me down is impossible.
The harder you try,
the more elusive I become.

I am nobody's friend.

Once I tarnish a reputation,
it is never the same.

I topple governments
and wreck marriages.

I ruin careers
and cause sleepless nights,
heartaches and indignation.

I make innocent people
cry in their pillows.
Even my name hisses.

I am called Gossip.
I make headlines and headaches.
