First, they lied to the poor people

From July 2009, published here after the BC Liberals reversed a promise before the May 2009 election that HST was “not on the radar.”
First, they lied to the poor people
And I did not speak out
Because I was not yet poor.

Then they lied to the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they lied to the wild salmon fishers
And I did not speak out
Because I did not fish for salmon.

Then they lied to the healthcare providers
And I did not speak out
Because I was healthy.

Then they lied to the educators and students
And I did not speak out
Because I was finished with schooling.

Then they lied about my pension plan
And there was no one who would
speak out for me.
