The Loner

I am an ignorant prophet
leaving decisions to fate
I gamble with each gust of wind
then watch all my dreams float away

I am a defective nomad
can never outrun my own race
I wait for the gun's explosion
and leave clouds of dust in my wake

I am a desperate gypsy
just a carnival freak on parade
I slip through the cracks of my past
to paint pleasant screens over decay
