Gnome-icide

May 8, 2017

Chateau Grumpy is in deep mourning.

Part of a quartet of Unley Householders For Peripatetic Little Pottery People, your  Parkside correspondent has to fess up to the sudden and catastrophic  demise of the    prototype  of he who was to have been a golden ceramic kerbside  challenge to the lights of Lobethal.

Travelling upmarket from Wayville to Parkside, Grumpy Junior called in at the Unley Civic Centre to pay his respects to Mayor Clyne…only to crash to the floor of secretary’s office.

A memorial service is scheduled next week at St Augustine’s. No flowers by request.

    That’s the last time I give you a bloody gnome.
    I spent hours painting it gold before gifting it to you.
    It was yours to cherish and care for.
    And what do you, carry it around Unley like a stuffed toy and then carelessly drop and smash it it in the Mayor’s Parlour.
    I should have given it to a more deserving resident.
    There will be no flowers sent!
