diplomacy shall be tweeted

slithers destructively, long
after echoes fade, a comet’s tail
seared by innuendo and speculation,
stark vacuum, former friendships,
a faint whisper of condemnation,
enough to capsize years of robust
relations, guerilla cyber warfare
for hearts and minds, live broadcasts
from local high school hallways

Quadrille prompt for d’Verse. Whisper: ORIGIN Old English ‘hwisprian’, of Germanic origin; related to German ‘wispeln’, from the imitative base of whistle.
