This is why I hate neutrality in this country

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.

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

-- Martin Niemoeller

I made this version after my experience in my last corrupt company:

In this company, they came first for the OJTs,
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t an OJT;

And then they came for the contractors,
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a contractor;

And then they came for the Engineers,
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t an Engineer;

And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up."
