God is Watching

“Just one apple per student,”
A sign was placed there to say.
In bold print, “God is watching,
Put only one on your tray.”

Then on the cookie table,
A sign painted by the same nun,
“A clean plate earns a cookie,
But you must take only one.”

“Take all the cookies you want,”
The words were scrawled down below,
“God’s back watching the apples
And nobody else will know!”
