As If They Had Sacrificed

Very seldom are those known,
To have championed effective causes...
Shown to have come into existence,
Are given the accolades to them deserved.
Often it will be the attention given and received,
To the ones who stood in opposition...
Bowing as if they had sacrificed with an effort,
They've campaigned with a remarkable marketing.
Then to not remember the beginnings of their deeds.
But prepared they are to embellish.
With a keeping of those attentive entertained.

A truthful poem indeed. Those who have sacrificed a lot are not given the accolades that they are so deserving of. The ones who are in the limelight riding on those that is more deserving will be short lived. A thought provoking write.
