First they came for…

Adapted from the poem by Martin Niemöller – “First they came for the Jews” in response to the poem.

First they came for the Refugees
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Refugee.

Then they came for the Homeless
and I did not speak out
because I was not Homeless.

Then they came for the sick
and I did not speak out
because I was not sick

Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.
