Misunderstood, Homeless and Desperate

Gypsies garbed in colorful robes fortune tellers on the seaside boardwalk sneers they get from nonbelievers “Vagrants,” they call tramps hobos from Hoboken to Alcatraz quietly passing the bottle to all in the boxcar don’t confuse thieves with gypsies and tramps we can say, “No,” to gypsies and refuse handouts to tramps the desperate who steal find a new home in jail
*Entry for Lisa’s “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” contest

    Carmen was a Gypsy in Bizet's opera. She was no thief, but just too different. Don Jose did her in. Good! Speak up for the Gypsies. Luck in the contest. Love their music. Love, daver
