First they came for ObamaCare and the VA,
But they said they were failing anyway,
So, I said nothing.

Then they came for Medicare, Medicaid, Minimum Wage, and Social Security,
But I’m not old or poor, and people should make better choices,
So, I said nothing.

Then they came for Muslims,
but religious freedom is for Christians,
So, I said nothing.

Then they came for the teachers and the Department of Education,
But my kids go to Christian school, and my friends don’t have kids,
So I said nothing.

Then they came for the Mexicans,
But those families shouldn’t have been in our country,
So, I said nothing.

Then, they came for the climate accords, the EPA and the National Parks,
But who needs to save the planet, when they should be saving me?
So, I said nothing.

Then, they came for the intellectuals, dissidents, people with wrong ideas,
But if you have nothing to hide, you should have nothing to fear,
So, I said nothing.

Then they came for the gays, blacks, Asians, and those women who don’t know their rightful subservient place,
But that’s not my problem,
So, I said nothing.

Then they came for me,
But the rich, white, Christian, male aristocracy is always right,
So I went like a sheep.
