The bitches and The bastards

But we do love these people, honest to goodness we do.
Even if they do push us down, hold us down,
Use us as rungs on their ladders of success.
Because in the end, when the curtain's fallen, we know
That if we take those rungs away, they'll fall,
Eventually,
And their little personal empires will fall with them.
Then, and then, and only then, can we use their broken bodies as rungs,
And climb toward the heavens on our own personal ladders,
And when we reach the top, we realise
We're not so different from them after all.
That is why we love them.
