Second They Came

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.
