From #3

I found out today by my doc that I had a deadly disease
So I wanted to tell my friends so they'd put my mind at ease
I called them up individually and told them to meet at my place
I waited there paitently, watching my gold clock's ticking face.
When it struck 6 o'clock I heard a knock at the oak door
My dog barked loudly but it was something I did ignore.
I told them to come in and they went to take a seat
I didn't tell them yet I thought I'd better continue to greet.

Then as the ice broke, I started to tell them about my day
I paused after the news and waited to see what each would say.
And what would you know the first pulled out her cell phone
She quickly began to dial a number of which is unknown.

I heard it pick up, and then my friend did the unthinkable to me
This secret I thought was safe was now for all people to see.
I couldn't believe what she was doing, my mind went blank
Especially right in front of me which was being quite frank.

I turned to my other friend hoping I could lean on her shoulder
But I saw something that made my heart turn even colder.
She was hanging out the window with a neon poster too
Which said, "Melissa's dying of something, come in and I'll give you a clue."

I started to cry, I just couldn't believe they were sharing my secret life
It felt as if my heart was being unlocked and with each word cut with a knife.
I started to think, "Now I know why a wise man once said:
Three may keep a secret if two of them are dead."

Blondie,
So now you know not to tell secrets, because it's two out of three and those odds are not good. Loved the poem.
