Exploited

The only acceptance a known deception seems to have,
Is the feeding of a greed that benefits the one who receives.
But leaves the one deceived unexpectedly flattered.
Until the repeating of the deceiving becomes a routine.
As if an unknowing of it is done.
And the one who becomes offended,
Pretends a sincerity given to the one unaware of it...
Or relies on an ego to be lifted,
Didn't appreciate having their abilities accomodated,
For the purposes to be exploited.
