Is being nice to someone becoming a thing of the past
Is the compliment a gesture whose intention has become a little too abstract
Could telling a stranger they look pretty be a little avant-garde
Or is it wrong to hold someone in high regard
Does personal contact make the compliment more sincere
Or do a few words over a ubiquitous void appear a little too austere
There is no question that communicating a smile is a sincerest form of flattery
Unfortunately human nature has lost its social battery.
