Child in need, child you need..


Are you truly too busy to care for your own
or just too selfish and greedy to provide a good home
Are you so lost in yourself, your own needs you must meet
when you should help and make time for your child with a need
Can you not see that for generations hereafter
what you now teach your children will lead to certain disaster
Can you not see to the future when you shall grow old
that your fate in his hands this child will hold..

And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
