Compliance is a T-bone steak
dished up to whet the appetite
of someone it can barely slake
before he takes another bite.
Accommodation is the sauce
poured on the fear that seasons meat,
while pleas are lettuce that you toss
at him to make his meal complete.
And seeing you serve his behest
with such ingratiating mien,
he’s quick to gobble up the rest
of it, until his plate is clean.
As tip, you’ll find this patron’s thrown
at you the masticated bone.
