Save The Children

See the dark face
large eyes appealing,
Withered, distorted limbs
Scant clothes revealing.
You who are fair of face
British, American,
Do not just pity them
Smugness concealing

One out of every five
Born to starvation
Needing some concrete help
From this you nation.
Give them of your health
Unstinted effort,
Yours is the power and wealth
Organisation
