Where God Ain't

And a little child shall
lead them. Isaiah 11:6

He was just a little boy
on a 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 over head,
So wisely placed on 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 of God."

"M'mm 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!
