Blitzed – a tribute poem for Steve Strange

“Would you let you in
Looking like that?”
The mirror’s aloft
As you cling to your hat

The stylish judgemental
Won’t let you pass go
You’d made such an effort
But you failed, and feel low

You’re missing the chance
To drink, mingle and dance
With the beautiful people
Who move with a stance

Be he friend or a foe
He’ll always be known
As the Hero for Clubs
In the London’s 80’s Soho

A movement of style
And music and fashion
You could do what you liked
As long as it had passion

And now that that era
Has faded to grey
The passion lives on
And our memories will stay

RIP Steve Strange
