They cluster about

like vampires,

smiling sycophants,

their eyes glowing

with delight,

basking in your presence.

Their good intentions

would suck you dry,

if you gave them half

a chance.


You smile,

all charm and pleasantries,

while internally, you mock

their saccharin sweetness

and puerile pandering.

You accept their homage,

nod nobly

and never let it seep

into your psyche.
