First they came for the unemployed, the poor and the disabled

First they came for the unemployed, the poor and disabled, I did not speak out because I was not unemployed, poor or disabled.

Then they came for the working poor, and I did not speak out because I was not one of the working poor.

Then they came for those on middle incomes, and I did not speak out because my income was higher, not top rate, but higher.

Then they came for me …… and there was no one left to speak out for me.
