The moon will hide its face behind its glow,
ashamed to light the way or just stand by.
Humanity will suffer, justly so
For every time a child is made to cry.
A just and fair reward we must impart,
for those who prey on innocence and trust.
For every child who knows a broken heart,
a penalty of death is ‘barely’ just.
Our world’s become complacent to abuse,
and all good deeds are carried out in vain.
There is no just defense, no good excuse,
For any time a child is left in pain.
Stand up and shout, insist that someone pay
For every time a child is led astray.
