Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Fight (with apologies to Dylan Thomas)

By Steven P. Senski
Do not go gentle into that good fight

Our hearts should burn and rage at come what may

Rage, rage against the lying of the Right

Tho Walker at his end knows of our might

He’ll use sweet words, tho forked with lightning they

Do not go gentle into that good fight

Good folk, a million strong, their names did write

Their frail flesh made stronger in their say

Rage, rage against the crying of the Right

Wild fiends descended ‘pon this state like blight

But learned, too late, they could not get their way

Do not go gentle into that good fight

For ALEC thinks Wisconsin in its sight

But Badgers vow it shall not have its sway

Rage, rage against the buying of the Right

And you, forefathers, clad in heav’nly light

Please bless us now, and our election day

Do not go gentle into that good fight

Rage, rage and lo! The dying of the Right

for David W.
