Gypsy Rose

Poetry By: Ava Rosien

A palm reader's message goes wrong!

Gypsy Rose was her name; reading palms her game

looking at an upturned hand; she his fortune told.

"You'll live long;have lots of sex; and also great fame."

Rose held forth her upturned hand; for a piece of gold.


When cops knocked on her door; she denied the claim;

"I just told him what I saw sir; that's not a crime."

The men in blue disbelieved; her argument was so lame.

In handcuffs they led her out; poor Rose would do time.


The man died within two days; without acheiving fame

Having sex three times a day; the old worn ticker died.

His wife was quite upset; on Rose she placed blame;

"He damned near killed me too!" The poor old woman cried.

The moral to this simple rhyme; don't ever say "have lots of sex" when reading the palm of an old man with a bad heart.
