Gypsy Guy

Well, Gypsy Guy would rather die than hunker down in chains, Be ridden south with bit in mouth, or heed the hold of reins; The ones that plot are in a spot, the boss man he complains: “The gypsy soul, I can’t control, my patience wears and wanes; They will not cede to common greed, one only way remains, In boxcar bins, with violins we’ll freight them out in trains, And in the bogs, they’ll die like dogs, and everybody gains.

    Terry, just got a better now can do some reading... This piece grabs the guts and holds on until the end...the constant struggle of the spirit of individualism that gypsies have always represented...thanks for sharing this

    Gorgeous and very touching and personal for me, my nan being one of the first of her people to leave her vardo and settle down with a fella who wasn't gypsy...I often wonder how many times she dreamed of her youth and ways natural to her....i keep reading this...beautifully put piece of poetry....tyvm karen
