👆 there is always something more than meets the eye.

Seldom is fulsome praise showered,
On even the most deserving,
From a place unselfish and true - 
Most people who praise are self serving!

It is rare to find an altruist,
Even among men of saintly garb;
The grist that goes into the mill,
Enriches the Miller and the Mill! 

Beware of all encomiums,
Even the seemingly unselfish;
Especially those who are in power,
Are used to it and deal with it well!

Flattery is to the sycophant,
Just a tool in his arsenal;
Censure and praise are one to the savant,
Who takes both in his stride!
