Blitzed – a tribute poem. Remembering Steve Strange on his anniversary


“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 glamour lives on and our memories will stay

RIP Steve Strange
