Daily Prompt: Flattery

via Daily Prompt: Flattery

“Your Majesty ! You are the only person under the sun who dislikes flattery!”, declared the poet. Everybody present in the court dutifully applauded.

Well, the strange thing with flattery is every one who is around can see through the game of the flatterer except the one being flattered. Even the act of garlanding a person may not be a truthful tribute to the person being garlanded. It is another form of flattery.
