Is an insidious disease
It puts many of you well people off
And makes you all quite ill at ease
Mostly you don't understand it
And you don't want to know
You bury your heads in the sand
Your minds you don't want to grow
You shun those with the condition
You don't want to discuss it
Do you think if you speak of it
You might actually catch it?
It's an invisible condition
Therefore it musn't exist
But what of those who suffer it?
Beware: It's a condition not sexist
It can strike any one of us
With no discrimination
We suffer in silence
Please: show us some compassion!
