Bully gets own way

All the bully wants is to get their own way
And whenever there is a bully there is also a bullied.
Maybe the bullied allows themselves to be bullied. 
Maybe the bullied thinks 'good they really are passionate about this and so what?
It doesn't matter to me and I can't be arsed to resist,
so i'll let them away with it. Maybe they'll realise how they are one day

But this lets the bully off the hook, 
It assumes the bully has a conscience that can be awakened by awareness, 
but bullies are rarely conscious of their actions,

Is this a limitation of the idea of ‘Turn the other cheek?
For each saint there is a warrior
