A FINAL ORDER OF REMOVAL – THE FINAL SOLUTION

A FINAL ORDER OF REMOVAL – THE FINAL SOLUTION
(from the poem, “First they Came for Socialists” by Martin Neimoller)
by- Moishe Kibbitzer

First they came deporting Mexicans without legal papers
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t Mexican-
Then they came for the Muslims
and I cheered-
Then they came for Commies, Socialists and the Beachhead staff
and I laughed-
Then they came for Obama, Hillary and Bernie
and I said that’s great-
Then they again rounded up Jews, Japs and Blacks
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew or a Jap or Black-
Then they came for me
and there was nobody left to protest-
