A gnome among men

 



Summer gnomes

This is a winter Gnome, not to be confused with a summer Gnome.


And the dross
Makes snow for the little
Summer gnomes scampering
Around your feet
Blooper reels make for
Winter fun
For summer gnomes
Too fragile to handle
The reel thing

The Red Sands Of Gnome
The gnomes under me
have stirred and clatter awake,
troubled with your scent
much like we dislike
the signs left by hissing cats.

They are the displaced
river gnomes they dumped
here last time they rumbled by
in their dwarf humvee,
all militarist
in their latest grand pretense.
They do hate the dry.

To see the dry one walk by

All the little gnomes
Ran out from their little homes
To see the dry one walk by

“I have a responsibility
Given directly from you to me
Without care or concern

That day you drove by
And gave me a thorn in my side
As you threw them from your Humvee

All those river gnomes
You drove from your homes
Can’t abide the dry!”

All the little gnomes
Ran back to their little homes
With shouts of glee for the search

"Has anyone a match?" one said
"He wouldn’t burn" shouted another
"If he wasn’t dry" they screamed in chorus!

Had I known

He’s got a gun, and a nicely swollen eye. Had I known he wouldn’t drop when I hit him I would have split.
“Did you hear me dick wad, I said I’m gonna kill ya”
“Yeah, I heard ya Razz”
At this point you might want to turn away or at least plug your ears……….

Thanks for the gnomes. One of the subset clauses in my secondary job description is to exercise them as they appear. I'll be better for the rest of the day now.

I could use this little summer gnome scampering through my garden. Leaves me feeling inspired.

Ben Ditty said...

SQUEEEE! You know your gnomes, good sir!

I came here from Ben Ditty's. WHAT WAS I THINKING. Step away from the "follow"
step away. Too late.

Why am I curiously drawn to the picture of the demon winter gnome from...? Your poetry is fun. Mine is not. I prefer yours.

keep it up.

Have you ever found a great treasure trove of writing with your gnomes or perhaps they found you? Thank you for visiting Io and making acquaintance with Ahu's family too. They are surely testing me at the moment I never know what they will do next.

This is great!

kj said...

they creep me out. i don't know why :^) maybe because i gave one to someone i loved and it turned out bad...

this is so much fun:

Has anyone a match?" one said
"He wouldn’t burn" shouted another
"If he wasn’t dry" they screamed in chorus!

♥ chris,
