First They Came With…

Martin NiemollerFirst they came with their Social Security,
and I didn’t speak out because it seemed like it would be good for the old and the economy too—a win-win.

Then they came with their interstate highway system, and I didn’t speak out because I knew that could be great for commerce.

Then they came with their Medicare, and I didn’t speak out because it seemed like it would be good for the old and the economy too—a win-win.

Then they came with healthcare for all, and there was only the crazies to complain because sadly they had not yet come with mental healthcare for all.

—with great apologies to Martin Niemoller
