My Street

You should live on my street,
it's the same thing everyday;
listen to them chatter,
in other's lives they like to play.

They carry their petty tales,
from one house to the next;
never caring who they injur,
or who's reputation they have hexxed.

There's a girl in 204,
and a man in 226;
the street  has gossip turning her
into his bag of private tricks.

The woman in 217,
who works both day and night,
they have her pegged as crazy,
but they do not know her plight.

They sling their labels,
and cast their stones,
I dare say it's because,
they've no lives of their own.

Me, I couldn't care less what they say,
they do not know my heart.
They haven't lived my life for me,
and wouldn't know where to start.

So let them wag their tongues and tails,
say whatever comes to mind.
I know who I am and what I'm not,
God forgive them for being unkind.

Author's Notes:
Just thinking about people who toss words around and label, when they really have no clue about someone. Don't know their life or anything about them. And yet don't hesitate to pass judement, or form instant opinions that they eagerly share with anyone who will listen...Nosey neighbors...

Excellent Barbie, gossip is so callous and hurtful, people should look at themselves before slinging mud at others. Henry

I've lived here for fifteen years and I don't even know my neighbor's names. I hope they're talking about's probably more exciting than my real life anyway! ROFL I could care less about what other folks do or their opinion of me...they don't pay my bills. I have my friends and my family and I am content with them. Great write, barbie. Spank 'em and make 'em pay attention! - Jude

Good write. I think those nosey neighbours are bored and unable to live their own lives. I wouldn't like to be in their place.

Loved the set up, it's kind of similar to something I've wrote, so i understand how you would think of the idea. People who make up things about other's are just foul!
Great Write!!!!
