First they came (2013)

First the Tories came for the public sector workers, and I did not speak out because I did not work in the public sector.
Then they came for the students, and I did not speak out because I received a student grant.
Then they came for the disabled people, and I did not speak out because I was able-bodied.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the immigrants, and I did not speak out because I was born here.

Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.
My rights, my wages, and everything else I took for granted, vanished.
