Help The Millions Missing

Help The Millions Missing.

 

Have you heard of the Millions Missing

Have you heard the news

Surely they’ve been on the radio

Looking for any clues

 

Have you heard of the Millions Missing

People just gone amiss

No longer turning up for work

Gone down some abyss

 

Have you heard of the Millions Missing

It’s not something they’d suppress

You can’t have people disappearing

Without reading it in the press

 

Have you heard of the Millions Missing

I heard in the hardest way

It was when M.E. came calling

I’ll never forget that day

 

Have you heard of the Millions Missing

I thought everyone would know

An illness like this,

Would be so hard to miss

Unless someone was making it so

 

Have you heard of the Millions Missing

Kids too ill for school

Some tube fed, tied to their bed

This illness is so damn cruel

 

Have you heard of the Millions Missing

We now display their shoes

As our way of showing, numbers are growing

There’s no more time to lose

 

Have you heard the Millions Missing

It’s about time that you did

So in the month of May, we’ll have our say

We’re going to lift the lid

 

You’ll hear from the Millions Missing

Using energy too precious to waste

They’ll raise their voice, making some noise

So you’d better be ready and braced

 

 

 

You’ll hear from the Millions Missing

And the help you maybe can lend

You’ll hear the cost, of lives being lost

And charities you may wish to befriend

 

It’s not the choice of the Millions Missing

To be as ill as we are

Being stripped of our very being

Seeing our old lives from afar

 

So please when you hear the stories

Of the Millions Missing from life

Please help us raise awareness

By spreading them far and wide

 

Between us we may raise our profile

Rather than the current dismissing

So please make a vow, to side with us now

To end the plight of the Millions Missing.
