Hey Diddle Diddle

***************

Hey diddle diddle,

The Prez and his piddle,

His hair combed over the moon.

The whole world laughed,

To see such graft,

And the rich had their way with the goon.

Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Fight

*******************************

Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Fight

*******************************

Do not go gentle into that good fight,

Old age should not depend on what you pay;

Rage, rage against the lying from the Right.

 

The ones who vote for change and not for spite,

Because their votes will help a neighbor, they

Do not go gentle into that good fight.

 

Good folks, whose copays keep them up at night,

Healthcare expenses growing by the day,

Rage, rage against the lying from the Right.

 

The angry ones who march and chant and write,

And see, with hope, that change is on its way,

Do not go gentle into that good fight.

 

Tired folks, fed up with acting so polite,

Resist oppressive laws and come what may,

Rage, rage against the lying from the Right.

 

And you, swing voter, caught in thankless plight,

Curse, bless, us now with your conscience, I say:

Do not go gentle into that good fight.

Rage, rage against the lying from the Right.
