Then they came for me…


First they came for the birth control pill

and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a 30 year old woman…

Then they came for the Viagra
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a 70 year old man…

Then they came for the HPV vaccine
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a 13 year old girl…

Then they came for my medicine…
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Maybe?
