Tuesday Chatter Weekly – March 5, 2018

196242-Birds-On-A-Branch

Gossip can be entertaining: occasionally, I’ve heard the most fascinating things about myself I never knew. -Vanna Bonta

Word on the weekgossiper (noun)-a person who habitually reveals personal and sensational facts about others. Synonyms-betrayer, blabbermouth, informant, informer, snitcher, squealer, stool pigeon, tattler, libeler, scandalmonger.

Gossipers, when at their best

 They create such a mess

Oh, so busy, like bees in a hive

 Perfecting their art of spreading lies

We wince and we grit our teeth

We’re slack-jawed as they begin to speak

Blah blah blah and flippity flap

More informants come up to bat

Faced with a conundrum of talking the talk

Best move along as they walk the walk

The squealers, snitches, and tattlers

The betrayers, libelers, and naysayers

A quorum of quidnuncs with nothing to do

Except create trifling talk about me and you

    Blabbermouth is one of my favourite terms, Eugenia! But yes, they do like to talk about us, don’t they?
    I love that photo of the birds!

      Thank you, Tom. The birds make me think of a bunch of informants sitting on a wire waiting to spread their lies.

    Eugenia, this is a great poem. Gossipers can do so much harm and
    you say it so clearly and yet keep the poem full of fun.
    A lot of depth in your poem, dipped in giggle.

    Gossip can destroy lives, it’s always best to avoid it. If you can’t say something nice, don’t sit near me!

    So many good things in this post. And yes Gossiping certainly make me wince too 🙂 And I have seen how idle gossip can wound when the facts of a situation are not known. Great Poem Eugenia.
    1970 and Let it Be.. where has the time flown. 🙂

    Have a great Tuesday Eugenia and an amazing week.. Snow here has gone, though not in all parts of the country. So Spring is Springing! 🙂
    Have a lovely day..
    Hugs Sue ❤

    Eugenia,

    Fabulous twist on your word prompt for the day, ‘gossipers’. I’d rather not be part of and when someone begins to tell tales then I do not offer my opinion and I do not tell others the truths, half-truths, or lies for nothing good ever comes from repeating what another says. It’s best to form your own opinion about the situation or person from one’s own experiences.

      I agree with you and you’re right, nothing good comes from gossipers.

    Another excellent Tuesday in the cafe Eugenia and I think it is human nature to enjoy a good bit of gossip 🙂 Nice to see the police were being gainfully employed in 1921.

      I’m glad you enjoyed my post, Davy. Haven’t things changed since 1921?

    Like your thoughts on gossip but what or who is a quidnuc?

      Well, if I had spelled it correctly, it may make more sense. A quidnunc is an inquisitive and gossipy person. I corrected it and so glad you questioned it.
