lets have a thread where we remix poems to work with whats going on now.

First they came for the undocumented
And I did not speak out
Because I was not undocumented
Then they came for the hackers
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a hacker.
Then they came for the journalists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a journalist
Then they came for the artists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not an artist
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

saw this one recently:

Thirty-three votes from midwesterners under the sky,

sixty-eight from southerners in their lakes of brine

eighty-three from rust belters doomed to die

two hundred and ninety for the dark lord on his dark throne

in the land of Washington where the politicians lie

One man to fuck them all, one man to mind them

one man to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them

in the land of Washington where the politicians lie.

You sound really overdramatic tbqh.The original poem works better because Hitler was kind of a madman and yet he was widely loved. Trump is just somewhat obnoxious tbqh.

This almost works but something isn't right about it.

hey, I originally wrote that!

I'm amazed someone remembers it, it was on a little leftie subreddit like two months ago.

First they came for the undocumented
And I did not speak out
Because the US must gain control of the southern border if heroin and other opiates aren't going to kill everyone
Then they came for the hackers
But it was an exercise in futility
Because Trump had already purged the entire state security apparatus so that no one would investigate his connections to the Russians
Then they came for the journalists
And I did not speak out
Because I realized that exchanging one band of liars for another didn't leave me worse off
Then they came for the artists
And I did not speak out
Because post-modernism finally exhausted itself in the mid-1980s and the avant garde has been dead since
Then they considered coming for me
But they didn't
Because they had to win re-election and they had already increased the debt by $4 trillion

For some reason I like yours more. You didn't mention Mike "fry the fruit" Pence though.
