When they came for me there was no one left to speak out

When the Nazis came for the communists I did not speak out, as I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats I did not speak out; I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists I did not speak out, as I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews I did not speak out, as I was not a Jew.
When they came for me there was no one left to speak out.
