Prayer for historic precedence

There will always be common people,
as there will always be opportunists to exploit them.
But there will be some who feel outrage,
who will rally for reform and refuse to be beaten down.

More often than not, the idealists are beaten.
(Paintings of historic uprisings usually only depict
rebellion leaders being executed.)

There are other occasions, rare perhaps,
but within grasp enough to offer hope,
when reforms succeed, and the opportunists are beaten
for the dogs that they are.
