Song for Raging Children

tune: "Songs To Aging Children" by Joni Mitchell
One line borrowed from Dylan Thomas

 
Life just starts, and then it's over
Like a raven taking flight.
Don't you think it's time to rage
Against the dying of the light?

Science cures us of diseases.
Stops the aging process cold.
Death itself is slowly dying.
Getting old is getting old.

There are some who know they think,
But how can they think they know?
To a life that isn't living,
Please count me as one opposed.
