The Order Of Thieves

She dances around
In the firelight
As the embers rise
Into the night

Brothers and cousins
Play fiddles and drums
Her skirt swirls around
As her spirit hums

She comes from a family
Of tramps and of thieves
She's a gypsy by nature
Like a tree with its leaves

By day as they hunger
They head into town
The women do dances
The men pilfer 'round

With all of their needs
They load up and go
Back to their camp
Until their next show

They see it as victory
For what they have won
They have no remorse
For what they have done


For the contest, "Gypsies, Tramps And Thieves" by Lisa Cooper

    Has a great rhythm and is the sister to my Gypsy Dance. Are we fascinated by these itinerant people?

    Gypsies have always been a mysterious and romantic group of nomads to me. I confess your info doesn't surprise me as they have to find some way to exist. Nice story and as usual, great rhyme!
