How many dreams have been destroyed, how many lives changed forever from mistruths being thrown out to cloud the issue. How, just how, can someone create a rumor to create discord in a way of life. That is wrong and, in the wrong, it is a travesty of justice for all.
The builder of false hopes in everyday life,
and also destroyer of dreams born from hope.
Begun as lightning like conduits of words,
flung through space of time from – somewhere.
Forming as small drops of innocent mistruths
then falling in a torrent of despairing mendacity.
Facts twisted, expressions and ideas shredded,
via oral and auditory pipelines; fragments remaining.
Mere figments of the whole, true thoughts exploded
at times beyond repair, at best a shell of the truth.
Dissension, disbelief remain behind, leaving rational
thought a victim in its wake, in a raging maelstrom.
Faulting “they” and “them” as the reason for all woes,
the faceless ones having the power to change all.
Words of “I heard”; a battle cry to continue the plague
of spreading discord thru the land, amongst thy own.
Rumor – not the truth, the whole truth and nothing but
the truth; instead, at best, partial pieces of fact.
Whole truth and total facts are not rumor, as rumors
In most cases, are not the total truth nor whole facts.
