Then They Came For Me

First they came for the conservatives
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a conservative

Then they came for the moderates
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a moderate

Then they came for the liberals
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a liberal

Then they came for the Christians
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Christian

Then they came for the atheists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not an atheist

Then they came for the uneducated
And I did not speak out
Because I was not uneducated

Then they came for the weak
And I did not speak out
Because I was not weak

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me.
