The Secret

His friend told him a huge secret
That could affect her life
She asked him to safely keep it
So he only told his wife

When his wife heard of the sinner
She promised not to tell
Her three closest friends, at dinner
Swore to keep it as well

And each the promise truly kept
Save those they’d trust the most
And all they told were well adept
To keep the secret close

Thus the secret was soon made known
And all around the town
What had been spoken to just one
Was widely spoken now…
