Gnomenclature
cubbzor

I've got a drawer full of gnomes
 1
get that pipe out of here Holmes
 2
this is no mystery
 3
its plain you see
 4
it wasn't a burglar who stole my identity
 5
but a bearded man about yeh high
 6
sparkling eye
 7
arms folded over his chest looks highly depressed
 8
don't lie
 9
you are impressed with the rest of the clues that may snooze
 10
you otherwise.
 11
 
 
The gnome left some traces of my composure
 12
exposed to them provoke me closer to closure.
 13
 
 
After hours of searching, I deduced some thought.
 14
never taught of the ways of the gnome,
 15
I had never known that the little guys
 16
were just images of their owners disguised
 17
in pointy hats and facial hair.
 18
Unaware, I tended to ignore my small self.
 19
 
 
Feeling sympathetic, I gave up on searching.
 20
He can have my identity.
 21
He needs it more than I do.

Well thought out and well crafted poem indeed.  Clever title too!  If I had any gripe at all, it would be line 17- not the wording- I think that it needs to be split.  Please consider...cool poem otherwise...
