"Show me the prison,
Show me the jail,
Show me the prisoner
whose life has gone stale.
And I'll show you a young man
with so many reasons why
And there, but for fortune,
go you or I."
by:
Phil Ochs
(1940-1976) Singer and lyricist

The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's courts and executive tyrants are so corrupt, it is but for fortune that you and/or I are not looking from the inside out.
