GOSSIP TOWN ~ Jack Suttles

Have you ever heard of Gossip Town
On the shores of Falsehood Bay
Where old dame Rumor with rustling gown
Is found the livelong day

It isn’t far to Gossip Town
For people who want to go
The Idlest Trail will take you down
In just a minute or so

Thoughtless Road is the easy route
And most folks start that way
But it’s a slippery slope and if you don’t watch out
You’ll land in Falsehood Bay

You’ll pass through the alley of Vicious Town
And into the tunnel of Hate
Then crossing the bridges of Scorn and Frown
You’ll enter the city gate

The principal street is called They Say
And I’ve Heard at the public well
The breezes that blow from Falsehood Bay
Are laden with “don’t you tell”

In the midst of the town is Telltale Park
You’re never safe while there
For its owner is madam Cutting Remark
Who lives on the street Don’t Care

Just back of the park is Slander Road
Twas there that Good Name died
Pierced by the shaft from Jealousy’s bow
In the hands of Envious Pride

From Gossip Town, Peace long since fled
To escape, Trouble, Cares and Woe
And Sorrow and Grief you’ll find instead
If ever you chance to go
