I found this Poem and could not find the original author as it is listed as unknown.

Nobody’s Friend
My name is Gossip. I have no respect for Justice.
I maim without killing. I break hearts and ruin lives.
I am cunning and malicious and gather strength with age.
The more I am quoted the more I am believed.
My victims are helpless.
They cannot protect themselves against me
Because I have no name and no face.
To track me down is impossible.
The harder you try, the more elusive I become.
I am NOBODY’S friend.
Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same.
I topple governments and wreck marriages.
I ruin careers and cause sleepless nights,
heartaches, and indigestion.
I make innocent people cry in their pillows.
Even my name hisses. I am called gossip.
I make headlines and headaches.
Before you repeat a story or listen to a story
ask yourself,
“Is it true?”
“Is it Harmless?”
“Is it necessary?”
If it isn’t, don’t repeat it
