Squaring the Circle
First they came for the Disabled, I did not speak out – because I was not Disabled .
Then they came for the Socialists , I did not speak out — because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Muslims , I did not speak out — because I was not a Muslim.
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 Jews, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for unemployed Welsh , I did not speak out – because I am not unemployed or Welsh .
Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.
