Solidarity with Wisconsin Protesters




First they came for the teachers' union,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a teacher.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the software developers and sent their jobs elsewhere,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a software developer.

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