The Poor Man Flatters No Man

A rich talked to a poor,
“I have one hundred ounces of gold. If I give you twenty, will you flatter me for that?”
The poor man said,
“It is not shared fairly, how can I flatter you?”
“How about fifty to fifty?”, asked the rich man.
“We are equal by then, I will not flatter you.”, said the poor.
“Ok, I will give you all, what then?”
“If I have all, there would be no need to flatter you.”
