"Wagging Tongues"

Wagging tongues
On feeble minds
With cold hearts
Without conscience
Spreading untruth,
And unpleasant truth,
Secrets and lies,
Perpetuating gossip,
Scandal and indiscretion...
Wagging tongues destroy lives

Tongues exercise futility
But often used by masters
With lethal intent, cold calculation
To seek out and destroy
What rolls off wagging tongues
Can never be taken back
Wagging tongues are weapons
Though tongues have no bones
They have broken many bones...
And many hearts...             Amen
