2. The Gnome will be hidden in a public place (Gnome don't go wandering onto private property)
3. Gnomes like to hid somewhere safe and wont go somewhere dangerous (so neither should you)

5. He will be in a brown bag (so dont call it in, as a suspicious package)

Wood but not a tree
They drew up the fields
Planted but never growing
Never to be knight
