Paintings of Gnomes by Tim Kahl

distracted drivers
deny estimated kill rates
claim unfair comparison
to domestic cats

megaquake alert
irks faith group's focus on
oaths uttered in bad Spanish

Pope's dove of peace
attacked by seagull
winner seen perching on
leading brand of cheese loaf

university kitty cams
reveal some brazen manx
can really fill out a dirndl

beach nourishment
encouraged by dedicated homemaker
seeking to protect
the American way of life

politician's remark
prompts widespread
paintings of gnomes
on utility poles along city streets
