The First Draft

I think this was the first draft of a famous poem..

First they killed all the lawyers,
and because I wasn’t a lawyer
I said nothing.

Then they killed all the politicians,
and because I wasn’t a politician
I said nothing.

Then they killed all the lobbyists,
and because I wasn’t a lobbyist
I said nothing.

Then they killed all the influence peddlers,
the partisan hacks, the publicity whores,
the vote tamperers, the war profiteers,
The corporate shills, the spin doctors,
the sophists, the hypocrites,
and I said nothing.

Actually, the world is a much nicer place now.
