A poem for a Wednesday evening:

“gossipmongers”

she could hear them
whispering behind her
a gaggle of geese
telling second and third
hand tales, not knowing
what was true or false
she kept her head up high
with a smile on her face
she would never give
those gossipmongers
standing by the doorway
a hint of satisfaction

  3. There's nothing worse than a tattle-tale gaggle of geese! A whimsical wealth of words!

  6. Oh, yes. The metaphor of geese works so well here, the harping and honking, the fluttering of useless wings and useless talk. Wonderful.

  7. Gaggling geese and gossipmongers...a perfect analogy. I appreciated the message in your poem. Gossip gets us nowhere.
