Really Gone

 

- What's that over in the corner Dad?

- I don't know Billy, it wasn't there 

yesterday.

- I've never seen anything like that before

Dad.

- I haven't either Billy.

- And the colour of it. What colour is that?

- I don't know Billy. I've never seen that

colour before.

- Well how'd it get there?

- Don't know, I didn't put it there Billy.

- Well it didn't just get there by itself, did it?

- I didn't put it there, but it's a strange looking

thing isn't it?

- Things don't just come out of nothing, do

they Dad?

- I don't know Billy.

- But they're not supposed to are they?

- I guess not. Some scientists say they do.

But it doesn't make sense to me. I've always

thought that nothing comes from nothing...

- Well Dad...Dad? Dad...Where are you

Dad? Dad...
