Not allowed to say a word
Not allowed to make a sound
Allowed to do anything
But there are consequences

    • The woman I lived with in the early 80s – on and off – was a big fan of Janis’s. I prefer Bob Weir’ s version on the Dead’s 1971 album (which doesn’t mean I dislike her version. 🙂 )

      I’d certainly be happier if today was more like the 60s and 70s.


  3. Otherwise . we are fucked. . .

  5. What came to mind is, “damned if you do and damned if you don’t.” Not the freedom anyone desires…
