Kieren Koala

Plea for tolerance

Quadrant Online has received a passionate plea for tolerance - emailed from a gum tree somewhere in Higgins.

Sir,

In response to the article on koala killing by the Greens Candidate for Higgins, and calls we have heard for making Higgins koala free by 2010, may I remind your readers of a famous bit of human bush lore: 

First they came for the koalas, and I did not speak out –
     because I was not a koala;
Then they came for the climate sceptics, and I did not speak out –
     because I was not a climate sceptic;
Then they came for the political dissidents, and I did not speak out –
     because I was not a political dissident;
Then they came for me –
     and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Cheers,

Kieren Koala
