The Nun and Hot Dog Cart

There just ahead she stood in line with just two customers to go
I already knew what I wanted on mine, lite on the onions though
And now it was the Sister's turn as my own mouth began to water
Oh But lesson we would all learn as I went to place my own order

With her order in her hand she walked back towards the corner wall
Confused, we didn't understand but it sure caught the attention of all
There was this man on the ground... I really didn't even notice before
Oh I do always see them around but usually I just simply try to ignore

But the kindness she showed and how she knelt down to him so meek
As this certainly was not owed such volume did Sisters actions speak
Now all eyes were upon her, people now feeling what they had sought
Yes there we all were, but why did so many of us need to be taught

In seeing perhaps our sad sorrow or sensing that we too want to try
She murmured something about tomorrow, that she can't make it by
That man ate well that next day as almost the same people were there
In going about her daily way Sister was really just teaching us to care
