First Line: The little people behind the scenes are getting ugly
Last Line: No good to them now, in their hour of need
Subject(s): Friendship; Giants; History; Historians


The little people behind the scenes are getting ugly.
They are seizing their own destiny.
They are plotting crimes against the big
people in the scenes.
They spite the holy and the hoi
polloi alike.
They've had enough of us.
The little people behind the scenes become tourists.

They want to meet other little people behind other scenes, but their only
friends are the giants of history, who are no good to them now, in their hour of
need.
