Dishin' It

  I can't believe it!
My gosh, have you heard?
I can't believe it!
Don't say a word!
Amy told Lauren
and Lauren told me
We all were sworn
to secrecy.
Do you think it's on Facebook?
I'll bet there's a pic!
What is that password?
Log in now, quick!
Go check on Twitter
See if it's trending
OMG, you guys
This is mind bending!
Let's get our cells
We've gotta text
Go through our contacts
Contact who's next
By homeroom tomorrow
The whole school will know
This will be epic
Can't wait for the show!
We just love gossip
We all agree
Come on, dish it all
Just don't talk about me!

Interesting poem, true to life in our town this week. 12 kids were suspended for liking a post a student did about a teacher, the posting kid got a 6 day suspension.

LOL, this is fun and true... About FB and twitter.. and yes, when one tells another, which in turn pass the ball on and rolling.. But well, that's part of the 'fun', is it not? *wink*

Nail on take with this writing.. I LOVE this!
