4/11/19 – Combs

Sean Combs, believe it or not,
Collected garden gnomes.
The cheap kind.
Do you know what I mean?
The dirt cheap kind that faded immediately
When the sun first kissed them.
The kind that cracked in winter frost.
The kind that had dead eyes.
Some believe Sean Combs
Collected cheap garden gnomes
Because he connected with
The deep-rooted melancholy they projected.
Others think it was because
He was tight-fisted Scrooge.
