First They Came (American version)

It’s obvious that yes, Virginia, coffee at 10pm does have an effect on me. So, I thought I’d post this:

In America, they came first for “Big Oil”, “Big Pharmaceuticals”, and “Big Tobacco”, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t any of those things;
And then they came for “the rich”, And I didn’t speak up because I don’t make more than $250,000. Or $200,000. Or whatever the number of the week is.
And then they came for small businesses, And I didn’t speak up because I don’t have a small business.
And then… they came for me… And by that time there was no one left to speak up.

Apologies to Martin Niemöller
