Confession: How my Mind Wanders

So, I've long thought that if I were going to write a disseration (which I'm not), it would be titled, "Responses to the Revelation of the Reality of the Divine in Megan Whalen Turner's Queen's Thief Series." (She provides a wide catalog of responses to the discovery that the gods are real, after all.)

Anyway, that may be why on Sunday as we were singing "All the Poor and Powerless" by All Sons & Daughters as part of the worship ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_vRBPRFuUU ), I realized that if you pluralize (and un-properize) few pronouns and one line in the chorus, it could really be applicable to most of the major players in QT.

Lyrics with edits underlines and repeated choruses removed:

All the poor and powerless
And all the lost and lonely
And all the thieves will come confess
And know that you are holy
And know that you are holy
And all will sing out
Hallelujah
And we will cry out
Hallelujah
And all the hearts who are content
And all who feel unworthy
And all who hurt with nothing left
Will know that you are holy
And all will sing out
Hallelujah
And we will cry out
Hallelujah
Shout it
Go on and scream it from the mountains
Go on and tell it to the masses
That they are gods
