When half a million children live on the street,
The Bangladesh government must admit defeat.
Here, when one child disappears
The police will search for years and years.
But in Bangladesh there is corruption
And to unravel it would cause disruption.
How do the children sleep or eat?
They often have no shoes on their feet.
Children thrown out because of sex
There is some doubt as to their
Some live on the railway station.
This is a disgrace to the nation.
Surely to help some have tried,
But how many of the street children
Have since died?
