Poetry Please: Whispers

Poetry Please

Whispers

Amongst good friends, when troubles brew,
Mind what you say, watch what you do.

Resist the need to analyse
The goings on in others’ lives
And make quite sure that what you see
Is not projected fallacy.

As even with the best intention,
Making thoughtful intervention
Could so easily misplace
What you perceive to be the case.

Unfounded whispers distance friends
And fractured words prove tough to mend.
Who said what to whom should just
Not be enough to earn your trust.

Let rumours be and if in doubt,
Leave those involved to work it out.
