Butter Ball

someone said

“Flattery will get you everywhere”

I call bullshit

If true, everywhere is nowhere I want to go

“Butter him up”

No thanks.

Sounds like a pre-suntanning ritual
Which fits.
Oily
Greasy
Prepped for roasting

Slippery.

What’s in it for the butterer?

It’s possibly from a bygone practice
of throwing
balls of butter
at statues
of gods
To ask for a favour.

What some folks will believe, huh?

Bygone.
Bye.
Gone.
