The Compliment

The Compliment

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.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
