Fifteen percent
thats what they say
is the energy you have 
to live the day
when someone has ripped your heart away-

I wonder how they came upon that math?

How did they calculate what you'd have left?

Did they use graphs to devise that sum

or just counted their fingers and thumbs?


What a stupid number to settle on

why not make it less than one

because that is how I feel-

but lets not get too real.


We are just talking about addition not subtraction.

No need for a heart felt reaction

Fifteen percent huh?
