First He Came for Everything (with abject apologies to that better Martin: Martin Niemöller)

First he came for the Mexicans, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Mexican

Then he came for the Muslims, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Muslim

Then he came for the transgendered, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not transgendered

Then he came for Hillary, and I did not speak out –
Because I am not Hillary

Then he came for the media, and I did not speak out –
Because I am not in the media.

He’d been coming after Obama over his birth certificate, which was weird
(for like years), and we kind of spoke out –
Because what the hell? But it didn’t seem to make a difference, and he still got elected,
Because: we live in Crazytown

Then he came for the Constitution, and I did not speak out –
Because I have no idea why

Then he came for the head of the FBI, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not the head of the FBI

Then he came for Spicey, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not Spicey

Then he came for the Attorney General, and I did not speak out –
Because I was not the Attorney General

After awhile, he came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

And I was kind of glad it was finally over
