Second They Came

(Sequel to FIRST THEY CAME by Martin Niemoller, German Priest, 6th January 1946)
19.01.2022 LISTEN
By Magnus Naabe RexDanquah

Second they came for the NPP Appointees
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a NPP Appointee

Then they came for the NDC Appointees
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a NDC Appointee

Then they came for the TUC Executives
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a TUC Executive

Then they came for the UTAG Executives
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a UTAG Executive

Then they came for some GJA Members
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a GJA Member

Then they came for some Radio Presenters
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Radio Presenter

Then they shot innocent bystanders during General Elections
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a bystander

Then they came for me

And there was no one left
To speak for me.
