What is happening to our children? nobody seems to care
They are disappearing, it’s like they evaporate in thin air
Every day the numbers are published, during the nightly news
Did you realise that it’s a new list, every day to peruse?
We need to insist that our children are safe and adored
And not send them to beg and sell, at people’s vehicle doors
Teach them to love and show them love too
Hug them and praise them, and say, I love you.
Our children are disappearing, and we are still having more
It’s like a social symbol, that makes us feel secure
Why don’t we just feed the many children that need care
Provide a safe place for them to walk, play, and live without any fear.
