Where God Ain't!!!! Print E-mail
(0 votes)

He was just a little lad,
And on the week's first day. 
He was  wandering home from Sunday School,
And dawdling on the way.

He scuffed his shoes into the grass;
He found a caterpillar;
He found a fluffy milkweed pod,
And blew out all the "filler."

A bird's nest in a tree o'er head
So wisely placed on high,
Was just another wonder
That caught his eager eye.

A neighbor watched his zigzag course,
And hailed him from the lawn;
Asked him where he'd been that day,
And what was going on.

"I've been to Bible school, " he said,
And turned a piece of sod.
He picked up a wiggly worm and said,
"I've learned a lot of God."

"M'm a very fine way," the neighbor said,
"for a boy to spend his time."
"If you'll tell me where God is,
I'll give you a brand new dime."

Quick as a flash his answer came!
Nor were his accents faint. 
"I'll give you a dollar, Mister, if
You'll tell me where God ain't!"
