SF poem by Neal Wilgus about the 'space gypsies' known as the 'Sling, slyly tying in SF references and attacking anti-Roma prejudice. Published in Monomyth 57.

Opening: "Some people hate the 'Slings - / those grungy, foul-smelling beggars / you find hanging out at spaceports"

The poem was long-listed for the 2016 Data Dump Award.
