A Twist to The Tale

It cannot be a fact,
that breaks my back,
makes me crazy
I turn dizzy.

it being a blatant lie
emanates from the sly
just an onslaught
one being bought.

Enraged I walk up and down.
my eyes knot in a frown,
I fume, froth and sigh
with my head held high.

Momentarily I am upset
after pick the strains instead.
wish to dash their hopes
and roll them down the slopes.

My upbringing restrains
I set aside the pain.
Resolve to shun their gossip
will catch them before they slip.
