CHINESE WHISPERS!

Beware of what you hear and read!
Lies are spread - each and every day
And night!
Called - Chinese Whispering!
Dr. Goebbels - said tell lies - BIG ones at that!
It's not just THE BIG lies - that accomplish - evil intent!
Often - more likely - little lies - spread - into every day
Conversant - conversation - '' I heard from some one
Who knows that from some who knows it for a fact! ''
'' So it must be true! ''

So beware - of Chinese Whispering!

It's a warning, a "beware" so it's kind of justified but personally I've never liked the use of exclamations at all and only prefer them as a last alternative for any emotion

As an American, the expression "Chinese whispers" would have been unknown to me, were it not for the fact that it served as the title of one of John Ashbery's books, and a helpful reviewer explained it!

Excellent reflection, Ken, as always!

Shhh! Seriously though, truth and lies can get embroidered.
