A Lecturer’s Lament

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First the SLT came for the Political Scientists, and I did not speak out –

Because I was not a Political Scientist.

Then they came for International Relations, and I did not speak out –

Because I was not in that department.

Then they came for Human Rights, and I did not speak out –

Because I was not interested.

Then they came for Media and Communication, and I did not speak out –

Because I was marking.

Then they came for Film Cultures, and I did not speak out –

Because I was too busy.

Then they came for the Historians, and I did not speak out –

Because I was sleeping.

Then they came for the Administrators, and I did not speak out –

Because I did not appreciate them.

Then they came for the Technicians, and I did not speak out –

Because I did not know them.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I still did not speak out –

Because I was not a union member.

Then they came to sack me, and there was no one left to speak for me.
