Good Advice, Taken Aback

Taken Aback
Don't ever talk 'bout folks behind their backs;

They'll hear, and likely spot you right away!

Instead stand d'rectly there before their backs;

They'll hear, but not quite catch your words, you say?

UPDATE: Yeah, I know it's a dreadful poem . . .

Well, it's got an abab rhyme scheme, and it's in iambic pentameter. You're on your way to a Shakespearean sonnet! (About 2/7 of the way, I believe...)

Moreover, it offers good advice, unconventionally expressed!

God, but it's a great poem!
