Martin Niemoller Poem

In Germany they first came for the Communists, 
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. 

Then they came for the Jews, 
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. 

Then they came for the trade unionists, 
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. 

Then they came for the Catholics, 
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. 

Then they came for me — 
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
