First I saw and met communism,
I didn’t speak because I wasn’t a communist.
Then came the Jews,
I didn’t speak about it because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then came the homosexuals, lesbians,
I didn’t speak of it either, because I wasn’t one.
Then came the Catholics,
I didn’t speak at all because I am an atheist.
Then they came for me and by that time,
No one was left for me to speak to.
