They'll be coming for you

September 21, 2013

To the editor:

First they came for the poor (Food Stamps), and I did not speak out -

Because I was not POOR.

Then they came for the sick and indigent (Medicare/Medicaid), and I did not speak out -

Because I was not SICK OR INDIGENT.

Then they came for the seniors (Social Security), and I did not speak out -

Because I was not a SENIOR.

Then they came for me, and by that time I'd become a POOR, SICK, SENIOR, and it was too late for me to speak.

(Loosely derived from the famous Martin Niemller quotation.)
