They came

First they came for the Moslems, and I didn’t speak up for I was not a Moslem;
And then they came for the Christian, the Jew and the Hindu too;
And I remained quiet for I thought they knew

Who had won?

They came for hate, and that seemed OK;
But passion as well, that went the next day

It’s for the best, they explained;
There’s too much pain
When you get into bed
With love

Now few dare dispute
Their truth absolute

There were some

But whilst they came for Martin
They never came for me
For there was nothing worth taking
Or nothing left to take
