Janis Ian, Between the Lines, at 17…
She cries the truth in word’s so bitter sweet.
We suffer the truth of these words.
We live the life of impressions.
‘Stoic truth’ can stop us all cold.
The breath we take, may make us pray.
Give us all a game to play:
Repent your sins, are ‘obscenities’.
Let women dance, the role of equality.
Pass the torch, virtual or not, like “Star Wars”!
“May the force be with you.”
