Poetry Corner: Flattery Is Battery

Flattery is Battery.

How high they take you is

how low you fall.

Flattery is Battery.

From praise and pamper

to questioning gull. 

Flattery is Battery.

Mattering so much,

Emotional low ball.

Flattery is Battery.

From the highest of devotion

to the lowest of them all.

Flattery is Battery.

Keep your heels on. Don’t fall.

Mattering is flattering.

I know I do; how about you all?

Flattering is pandering.

Back to my catwalk now.

Proverbs 29:5-6  (NLT)
To flatter friends is to lay a trap for their feet. Evil people are trapped by sin, but the righteous escape, shouting for joy.
