"The Neighbourhood bully just lives to survive,
He's criticised and condemned for being alive,
He's not supposed to fight back, he's supposed to have thick skin,
He's supposed to lie down and die when his door is kicked in,
He's the neighbourhood bully."
(Bob Dylan, lyrics to the 1982 song "The Neighbourhood Bully"
For anyone to whom this is not blatantly obvious, the words are heavily ironic)
