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. 

I flourish at every level of society.


My victims are helpless. 

They cannot protect themselves against me because I have no face to track me down, for the harder you try, the more elusive I become.


I am nobody’s friend.

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

I topple governments and wreck, marriages. 

I ruin careers, cause sleepless nights, heartache and indigestion. 

I spawn suspicion and generate grief. 

I make innocent people cry in their sleep.
