By word of mouth
Her secret spread to ears
It was sworn private
She never feared
She trusted the one
Who knew the truth
But she broke the promise
As most do
One more pair
Of ears won’t hurt
As long as she swears
She won’t say a word
But what’s the worst that could come
If it slips one just one time
And so it travels
Down the line
The girl who’s secret
This first belonged
Is not whispered of
Down the hall
But the stories changed
And she is judged
The gossip spread
Her rep smudged
She learned that she
Can’t trust-she doubts
Her misfortune started
By word of mouth
