Once you hear the jackboots, it’s too late.

Once you hear the jackboots, it’s too late..

 

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.
