Where Did They Go

Updated on January 15, 2012

Where Did They Go - By Pat Gillem

There once was a man called Gil,

who had a sweat lodge on a hill.

Out by his fire, Gil would sit,

then go into, the lodge to sweat.

You could see his fire, far and wide,

along came Uncle Larry, to see who was inside.

He opened the flap, to see who was within,

Gil sitting in a cloud of steam, invited him in.

They talked and laughed, and steamed all day,

then Uncle Larry said, '' The time is getting away!''

" I have to go, My wife is making beans and muffins."

But neither one could reach the door, caused they steamed themselves to nothin!
