 the gypsy poet

free men

free men

they hung the poor gypsies or sold them as slaves
they tortured them daily from birth to their graves
they sent them to prison and to the US of A
then they gave them some land but made them work for their pay

they marked them with signs on their head and their breasts
just because they were different and not like the rest
with rings on their fingers and dark shiny hair
their music was rich and they went with the fairs

they gave them sites in the war years when they fought for this land
then they moved them on with after their ponies and bands
they made them take houses and give up their ways
to live in this country for the rest of their days
