My homage to Dylan Thomas's classic poem, "Do not go gentle into that good night."
Do not go gentle into that good night
    of blight, decay, and disease;
    rage, rage against the dying of the light—please!
With all of your might
    until I am at ease!

Do not go gentle into that good night
    of solemn, irrevocable sleep;
    rage, rage against the wooing of the Deep!
Come to me and to the light—
    or else I will weep!

Do not go gentle into that good night
    of the ebb of your power;
    rage, rage against the withering of your flower!
Deny eternal rest its right
    to take you before the final hour!

Do not go gentle into that good night
    which leaves you morbid and undone;
    rage, rage against the gradual setting of your sun!
Tho' the end's almost within sight,
    fight, fight till your light is all done!
