GOSSIP — THE HISTORY OF A LIE

GOSSIP — THE HISTORY OF A LIE
GOSSIP — THE HISTORY OF A LIE

It was my good fortune to receive an e-mail from a colleague at Eastfield College who had favorable comments about the commentary writings that appear in the Weekend Memo.

She asked if I would be willing to come to a communications group that she has formed; I agreed.

As I thumbed some of my papers, I came across this little item about a practice that is very much a part of organizational life —

that practice being gossiping. Some may find this to be a useful thought piece.

First, someone told it,
Then the room could not hold it,
So busy tongues rolled it,
Till they got it outside.

Then the crowd came across it;
They stretched it and tossed it,
And never once lost it,
Till it grew long and wide.

This lie brought forth others,
Evil sisters and brothers,
And fathers and mothers —
A terrible crew.

As headlong they hurried,
The people they flurried,
And troubled and worried,
As lies always do.

So evil it boded,
This monstrous lie goaded,
Till at last it exploded,
In sin and in shame.

From the mud and the mire,
The pieces flew higher,
Till they hit the sad liar,
And killed his good name.
