It is said it is suicide 
to sit at the scarred oak table 
of the aged gypsy with the frayed gold turban 
topping a leathery lined face 
framed by stretched drooping earlobes 
hung with tarnished coins     and drink 
of the tepid brew without emptying the cup 
For if you do not camouflage the dregs 
she will certainly read the signs 
of a devastating future in the tea leaves 
that will send you bounding straight to madness 
by the describing of it alone

    Yes. The findings of a gypsy can be devastating to the soul. Awful when you consider the gypsy is mainly interested in money and not one's soul. I do love gypsy music though. Love, daver
