Persuasion

Persuasion is an art, they say

To compel someone to think your way

Requires achievement of a balance delicate

You have to first try to estimate

How strong their beliefs are, how much you can sway

Them in your favor, then you dispel their doubts away

Regarding your opinion, simultaneously

Let them doubt their own stand increasingly

The ultimate trick to make them change their opinion

Is to convince them that it is actually their decision

You’ve subtly nudged them and at the same time

Boosted their ego, you have them primed

To remain, for a while, audience captive

You have thus succeeded in your motive
