Status: Super Short Story #578

He was extra respectful to her
only due to her extra high status,
not due to her extra great character,
as he knew nothing of her character.

that it is hard for her to know
if most respect her or her status,
that might disappear overnight.

How sad it is, he thought,
if she imagines such respect
to truly be respect,
when it is truly delusion.
