Never Trust a Gnome

Never Trust a Gnome

A Poem by Miki

Listen up everyone. Listen VERY VERY closely. Are you listening? Are you REALLY listening? Alright then--- This is VERY important: You must NEVER trust a garden gnome.


You must distrust and fear the garden gnome,

Sitting on the lawn in your next door neighbor's home.

Watch for the little ones with the tools,

Sitting on the little wooden stools.

They wear their pointy red hats,

Scaring passing outdoor cats.

Avoid looking into their beady black eyes,

For that is very very unwise.

Never steal a garden gnome's hat,

For that will surely initiate combat.

Covered in grime and dust,

Throwing them in a pool is a must.

But as soon as you turn your back,

Your security system they will hack.

In the dead of night as you're sleeping,

Into your room they will be creeping.

They brandish their tools ready to start a war,

So be sure to double check the locks on your door.

Don't let them roam around your home,

And never under any circumstance trust a gnome.

Haha, this one made me giggle. ^^ I never knew garden gnomes could be so evil. o.O

I love the steady rhyme scheme in this. I think with some fin illustrations, this would make a very cute children's book.

Nicely done!

Fantastic write Mikayla. It's lovely to see a new piece from you.
A very humorous and light piece. Definitely going down in my favorites; it's just one line that stood out.

"Avoid looking into their beady black eyes,

For that is very very unwise."
