First they came for the air travelers,
and I didn’t speak out because I almost never fly*.

Then they came for the train riders,
and I didn’t speak out because I don’t ride the train.

Then they came for the Greyhound riders,
and I didn’t speak out because I don’t ride the bus.

Then the came for the truck drivers,
and I didn’t speak out because I don’t drive a truck.

Then they came for me
and by then no one cared about liberty.

*of course, tomorrow I am, and then again on Tuesday. So I’ll probably regret this. Which says a lot, right there.
