A TALE NOT TO BE HEARD OR TOLD

Don’t give your ear
To hear a tale,
Especially one
That concerns you not.
For many have heard
Tales not meant for them,
And it spelt them doom;
While others heard
Tales that was told them,
And they deemed it fit
To tell another
And it broke a bond.
A man’s ear is quick,
And his tongue is even quicker
To want to tell a story,
So be careful
Of what you hear,
Filter your thoughts;
Guard your heart,
Muzzle your mouth;
Lest you be a talebearer
And be left with no reputation
