      The Dryad

      First they came for the writers,
      But I didn't speak up,  because I was not a writer 
      Then they came for the students,
      But I didn't speak up, because I was not a student.
      Then they came for the musicians, 
      But I couldn't speak up, because I was not a musician.
      And then, they came for the Greens, the Muslims, the Trade Unions, the Christians and the Jews, the travellers, the homosexuals, the journalists, the artists, the tagers, the doctors, the philosophers, the economists, the anarchists and the politicians, the nerds, the Europeans, the Americans, the Communists, the Hackers, the illegals, the homeless.
      But I didn't speak up, because I wasn't any of them.
      And then, they came for me.
      And there was no one left to speak up for me.
