Tongues are never idle and lips are never still,
you can listen all day but do you ever get your fill
of tidbits of gossip to spread down the vine
but if they gossip about you, is that where you draw the line?
Animated faces as secrets are told,
does small town living never get old?
A whisper in the ear, a lifting of the brow,
“I’m outta here, you gossiping old cow!”

Gossip, the curse of small town living. Some people love small towns and some people hate ’em! Me? I hated it and left. My mother would always say, “I can sit on my front porch and find out what you girls are up to.” Well this one is for you, mother!
LOL! I had fun with this one. Oh!, and fuck small towns!
