Lunch Time in the Cafeteria

At a Catholic school at lunch time one day
As the children queued up in an orderly way
The first thing that confronted the pupils
On the end of the counter was a large pile of apples.
By the apples a nun had written a note saying
"Take only ONE because God is watching."
As they made their way along the counter
The canteen rang out with childish laughter
Chocolate chip cookies stood in a large pile
With a label which made them all smile.
A child had written a note for the pupils,
"Take all you want. God is watching the apples."
