Chinese Whispers

There’s a rustle on the grapevine
A whisper on the breeze
A rumour that is mingling
On the networks with great ease

There’s a buzz and a commotion
A story that’s about
Some news that’s in the headlines
Some gossip to shout out

But is it really verified
And actually true
Or is it utter nonsense and
Another person’s view

Chinese whispers gone awry and
Translation lost in vain
So take care in what you circulate
Lest passing on more pain

For chinwag and innuendo are
A plague that hits us all
Not uplifting one another
But causing each to fall

With no rational or reason
No substantiated fact
Just idle tittle tattle; a
Confabulated act
