Randy Cangelosi, partner at Kean Miller LLP and BRAC’s 2019 Board Chairman, took the stage on March 27 at BRAC’s Annual Shareholders’ Meeting presented by Kean Miller LLP to deliver a rousing, thought-provoking poem. 

In his poem, Cangelosi calls business and community leaders to use their influence to positively affect the Capital Region. 

Check out the complete poem adapted from Dylan Thomas’ original poem, “Do not go gentle into that good night.”

Rage Against the Traffic and the Blight 

“Do not go gentle into that good night, 

All Age should burn and rave at close of day; 

Rage, Rage against the Traffic and the Blight. 

  

Though people are busy, doing what’s right, 

Red tape and apathy rule every day.  

Do not go gentle with Traffic and Blight. 

  

Old bridges, Few lanes, the lines are not bright, 

Pain at the Intercoastal Waterway.  

Rage, Rage against the Traffic and the Blight. 

  

Old homes with high weeds, many a termite,  

We learn, too late, good titles clear the way, 

Do not go gentle with Traffic and Blight. 

  

Last leaders did not see with blinding sight, 

Leaders, now, Embrace the gas tax! Today!  

Rage, Rage against the Traffic and the Blight. 

  

And you, business heads, do not fail to fight.  

Curse, bless, me now with your fierce sweat, I pray. 

Do not go gentle into that good night. 

Rage, Rage against the Traffic and the Blight.”
