Oh Humble volunteer, where can you be,
Selling hot dogs in the shade of a tree?
Perhaps attending a lecture at City Hall,
How can you possibly juggle it all?
There were rumors that you were seen at the Raid,
Handing out leaflets in the afternoon shade.
Baking cookies, or driving a tram,
Giving home tours, Looking 1800’s glam.
Setting up tables, as well as large tents,
Wrestling with brochures, not making a cent.
Why do you do it, why work so hard?
Is it for a framed certificate or ‘thank you” card?
Why teach history to those who don’t care?
It’s something that drives you to make them aware.
It’s not about money or fame or being smart,
It’s about reaching someone straight from you heart.
So when you see all over town,
Teaching & working, never being down,
We’ll point and say, “honey look over there,”
There goes Hernando’s Best Volunteer.
