The Sire of Sorrow (Job's Sad Song) by Joni Mitchell

With the massive destruction of Hurricanes #Harvey and #Irma on the front page of the news, it's a great time listen to one of Joni Mitchell's masterpieces.  It's a song about God's cruelty to man or perhaps His perceived indifference to our suffering. It's called The Sire of Sorrow (Job's Sad Song) and originally appeared as the last track on her Turbulent Indigo album.  Another version appeared years later on her Travelogue album.  They are both worth a listen.  Many listens!
