The poem presents the thoughts and memories of an old battered garden gnome nearing the end of his useful life. However he hopes to 'go with dignity and style, not dumped on somebody's rubbish pile.'

This setting was written for GALS (Gay and Lesbian Singers) of Auckland for a concert with a 'house and garden' theme.
