Fifty Per Cent – a poetic tribute from Blue

Fifty Per Cent
50%?
That could mean a glass
Half full or
Half empty.
My favourite glass -
A memento from a
Goth Weekender in Whitby
Showing a view
Of the Abbey -
Is
BROKEN!
Smashed to a million pieces by
A careless cat.
The Whitby trip was nice:
I met Greg, looking good
In vampire drag, his eyeliner
Immaculate!
BUT
When we met up later in London
It became clear he was
A part-time goth!
He turned up in a Matalan suit
Straight from his job as
A ledger clerk with a white goods firm.
He took me to an all-you-can-eat
Carvery in Dollis Hill!
A deal breaker for
I, a vegan,
Blue.
