The nonsensical chatter,
Endless rumours, swapped with haste.
My mind is stretching from it all.
"Did you hear about her?",
"She's getting quite a reputation! Ha!"
I frown and stare into nothingness.
When will it end?
When class or rank is killed by misfortune.
I wait for real conversation.
It's all about corsets',
Family, wealth and more. Disappointing.
Society won't admit to selfishness.
