Dylan Thomas wrote: “Rage, rage against the dying of the light,” and I subscribe to that response to encroaching oblivion as well. I’m appalled by the preponderance of monumental humans who have recently fallen through the cosmic crevasse, starting with the death of my life partner, Chemayne Halverson (1/6/1967-12/23/2020) two days before last Christmas.

As the shock and howling grief have subsided, anger has come flooding in, and I suppose this song is a manifestation of that fury. But, it’s also a celebration – a Reggae raver, raging against the dying of the light. Rich noticed that there’s also a Brecht-Weill connection, which makes sense considering that I cut my theatrical teeth on the Bard of Berlin.
