Devonslope

First They Installed Cctv In Teignmouth,
To Deter Vandals And To Catch Litter Louts
And People Whose Car Tax Was A Day Overdue.
I Applauded, Scoffing At Tony Blair’s Dream
Becoming Eric Blair’s Nightmare.
What Could The Law-Abiding Have To Fear?

When They Dispersed Groups Of Two Or More
Who Might Be About To Cause Trouble,
I Was Enthusiastic,
Being No Longer Young.

When They Came For The Addicts, Alcoholics And “undesirables”,
I Did Not Speak Out,
Because I Had Left That Life Behind.

When They Came For The Sick, The So-Called Incurables,
I Muttered Something To Myself
But I Was Not Mad Enough To Receive That Treatment.

When They Came For The Rotarians And Round-Tablers,
I Held My Peace;
Perhaps Uncharitably.

When They Came For The Councillors,
I Remained Silent;
I Despised Local Politics.
Niemöller’s Final Stanza Continues To Apply
