I try hard to avoid it but at times
I find myself tangled up in
its sticky web.
It is the creepy crawler gossip,
I try hard to evade.
We were close back in the days,
when I worked at the office
and in between coffees
my girlfriends and I used to
about everyone else.
It is ok as long as we mean well,
we used to say.
Of course, back then
we weren’t familiar with the Word;
we lacked the wisdom to know best.
“gossip break up friendships”
The Lord warns us;
and I learned the hard way.
“Listening to gossip is like eating
do you really want junk like that
in your belly?
This verse I now treasure and I
try my best to stay vigilant and alert;
and when I see it coming my way
I run, hide or shut the door in its face.
