Very original. I really liked it. No red ink.
Clever. Nicely done.
I think delicious gossip is a great take on the topic. It's fresh and original. In my opinion, the ellipses distracted me a tiny bit. Remember that it's always 3 dots, unless it's clearly the end of the sentence then it's... . Also, if you want to put something in bold (like the first letters of the poem), you need to use html code. Bold would be like this, but without any spaces: < b> and when you're done, you do this: < /b > (again no spaces, and you use an I for italics and a u for underline).
I think you did a nice job of pacing your story. I could almost feel the frenzy. Since ellipses usually mean a pause, an em dash--might have helped that pacing even more. Your message is great too. I liked the Bible verses you used to back it up. Great job.

It reminds me a little bit of the political climate. I thought this was creative.

It was like slithering through the mind. Gossip, so seductive, so delicious, yet in the smoothest way was tangling and pulling downward. You took me on that journey. Well written.
