"I Am Gossip"

I am Gossip. I hurt people, create hate and rumors.
My name spreads like a cold.
I go in and out of mouths,
Making people hurt,
Scared,
Sorry,
Mad,
Angry
And curious.

This is what I do.

I am a deadly thing. The words I say are horrible.
They can lead from one thing to another with me.
I can say something nice one minute
and awfully mean the next.
I can be sneaky
Or caught right on the spot.

No one likes me.
They hate my words and my lies.
I get people upset all the time with my cruel looks and rude
Comments.
I get everyone talking when I start something with someone.
Everyone wishes I didn't exist.
They wish I would go far away and
Never Come Back.

I am Gossip.

This is what I do.

Where did my baby go?
