Where God Ain't

He was just a little boy,
On a week's first day.
Wandering home from Bible 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 overhead, 
Wisely placed so high. 
Was just another wonder, 
That caught his eager eye. 

A neighbor 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 about God."

"M'm 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 the answer came!
Nor were his accents faint..
"I'll give you a dollar, Mister,
If you can tell me where God ain't."
