When I went to Nome Alaska
I was quite startled to learn
it was not named for Gnomes!
With anger and embarrassment I did burn
upon discovering that gnomes don’t freely roam
‘round every corner and turn.
“I came to Nome to see a Gnome!” I did bemoan.
I continued, “The name of ‘Nome’ this place did not earn!”
So finding nary a gnome in Nome, I angrily drove home.
