Personification: Make a “thing” a character.

Rumor Comes to Town
By Elizabeth Cutright

Whispers dart ’round corners,
Tap you on the shoulder,
And slip into your ear unseen.
Rumor’s come to town today.

Tall tales and asinine asides.
All scandal & circumstance
Laid out before us
Like a last supper feast.

Protagonist or villan,
The teller never really cares.
It’s the juicy, pulpy story
that’s all in the details.

Cast the net yourself
Or get caught up in its twine.
Either way you’ll end up trapped,
By truth and its tiny little lie.
