With Sympathy for Martin Niemöller
First they eliminated the dischargeability of student loans in bankruptcy –
But I did not complain, for I was not a bankrupt student borrower.
Then they jacked credit card interest rates and fees sky-high –
But I did not complain, for I had no credit card debt.
Next, they faked the bailout for underwater home mortgages –
But I did not complain, for my home’s value remained stable.
And now they have come to inflate the dollar and wipe out my savings –
But there is no one else with savings left to complain.
