Bletherskites

The Gossips by Norman Rockwell

Bletherskites

We knew how it would end-up from the very first –
Someone blabbing to a tabloid hack.
Those who spaff the spoilers are the very worst !

Some can’t keep a secret and will always burst
Spilling the surprises shows hold back –
We knew how it would end-up from the very first.

Some folks love to chatter till they’re well-rehearsed,
And can’t resist the calling of the craic –
Those who spaff the spoilers are the very worst !

Ignorance is fragile, anticipation cursed,
Our ears must hear the constant yack-a-yack –
We knew how it would end-up from the very first.

Impatience is a burden with a raging thirst,
And throws all expectation out of whack.
Those who spaff the spoilers are the very worst !

Once the gaffe is blown, it can never be reversed,
The clever twist can never land its smack.
We knew how it would end-up from the very first…
Unless…it’s just a ruse to throw us off the track…?
