We can never Justify Gossip!

We can never Justify Gossip!
★★Gossip Poem★★
Author unknown
(Author unknown)★My name is Gossip.
I am a direct descendant of the father of lies.
 
I have no respect for justice.
 
I maim without killing.
 
I break hearts and ruin lives.
 
I am cunning and malicious and I 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 and no 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 indigestion.
 
I make innocent people cry in their pillows.
 
I make headlines and headaches.
 
Even my name hisses. I am called Gossip.
So.........
Before you repeat a story, ask yourself:
 
Is it true?
 
Is it harmless?
 
Is it necessary?
 
If it isn’t, why repeat it?
