When Rednecks Rise Up

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

The above verses are compliments of the late-great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. So you may be asking yourself about now, “Why is Skip quoting poetry? I thought he was a redneck?”

Yes, it’s true. I am a redneck. But I guess I’m one of them there “Renaissance Rednecks”. (Insert appropriate southern, nasal twang.) Truth is, I’ve never really appreciated poetry. I don’t like modern art either. I stand there looking at the blob of paint on the canvas and when someone asks me, “What does it say to your soul?” I reply, “It’s telling me some people have way too much time on their hands, and they should stop taking so many drugs.”
