Fortune Teller

Fortune teller is telling lies

when she says what’s behind my eyes.

My future is bright she says

after a few moments of analysis.

This is news to me

when dark clouds are all I can see.

Slipping her money across the table

as she prepares to tell me

another untrue fable.

Desperation has brought me here

but even now I can’t believe what I hear.

It would have been more beneficial

to spend my money on wine,

at least then I would have

found some piece of mind.
