NOBODY'S FRIEND

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 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.

Even my name hisses.

I am called Gossip.

I make headlines and headaches.

Before you repeat a story,
ask yourself:
Is it true?

Is it harmless?

Is it necessary?

If it isn't, don't repeat it.

RUMORS

Let not your heart be guided by
The rumors that you hear,

But give the victim every chance
To prove he is sincere.

Let not your mind be poisoned by
The darts some people throw;

Investigate, and try to find
The facts you ought to know.

It is so easy to condemn,
And play a dirty game,

To manufacture lies, and to
Besmirch a worthy name.

Be careful when you read reports
Or hear them on the air,

Some words escape the censors,
And could be quite unfair.

Be careful in your judgment of
The rumors you receive,

And take your time before you choose
The things that you believe.
