Where God Ain't!!!!



          WHERE GOD AIN'T!!!! 
  
          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!"
