The Familiarity of an Acquaintance

You must always be sure to use
Colorful affection with
Ribbon-wrapped words and

Throw a smile over your shoulder;
See how far it will go,
Since a child always loves
A sticker with a smiley-face.

Articulate with an emphasis
That will demand the consideration
Of ears that surround you,

And remember that gilding your expression
Is infinitely better than telling the truth,

Because honesty can make
For a sour taste on the tongue of
the listener’s thoughts,
Which will not benefit your delicate grace.
