Brandi Carlile's "The Joke" invites reflection on
the Spirit of Comeuppance and the place it has
in liberation theologies and philosophies
There are so many people feeling misrepresented...So many people feeling unloved. Boys feeling marginalized and forced into these kind of awkward shapes of masculinity that they do or don't belong in... so many men and boys are trans or disabled or shy. Little girls who got so excited for the last election, and are dealing with the fallout. The song is just for people that feel under-represented, unloved or illegal."
You're feeling nervous, aren't you, boy?
