HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY 1

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 First they came for our goalkeeper,
He was a Communist,
But I wasn’t,
So I said nothing.
Then they took our wing backs,
They were Socialists,
But I wasn’t,
So I said nothing.
Then both our centre backs disappeared,
Trades Unionists,
But I wasn’t,
So I said nothing.
The mid-field was hit next,
3 Jews and a Gay,
But I wasn’t,
So I said nothing.
Then we lost our front 2,
Colour of their skin,
But I’m white,
So I said nothing.
And then they came for me,
And there was no one left to speak for me.

With apologies to Pastor Neimeyer
