And when the tweet came for Khizr Khan,
I remained silent;
Because I am not Muslim.

And when the tweet came for Lauren Batchelder,
I did not speak out;
Because I am not a woman.

And when the tweet came for Alec Baldwin,
I did not speak out;
Because I am not a comedian.

And when the tweet came for Chuck Jones,
I remained silent;
Because I am not a union leader.

And when the tweet came for Alan Mulally,
I remained silent;
Because I am not a corporate executive.

And soon the tweet may come my way,
And if I do not speak out now,
There will be no one left to speak out for me.

No apologies Pastor Niemöller, only thanks!
