WHERE GOD AIN’T!
He was just a little boy,
on a week’s first day.
He was wandering home from Sunday School,
and dawdling on his 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 overhead,
so wisely placed on high,
Was just another wonder
that caught his eager eye.
A neighbour watched his zig zag 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 replying,
“I’ve learned a lot of God.”
“M’m a very fine way,” the neighbour 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 the answer came!
Nor were his accents faint.
“I’ll give you a dollar, Mister,
if you can tell me where God ain’t.”
