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,
As innocents so blatantly are slain
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.
