Poems for Lovers and Sinners

Email Poem | Today's Poetry


  Oh what has overtaken this body of mine?
    From one of loving and caring
  To this monstrous thing, which...
  Stalks the streets of Victoria's London
    Looking for my next victim
  Of sacrificial slaughter -

  Amongst the shadows of the gas lamps
    Dark, dank allyways
  Where the fog never lifts - And
    The putrid stench lingers
  Amongst the cobbles and sewers
  Which surrenders into your nostrils -

  This to me is my operating room
  My surgery, my appointment with my patients
    There is no call to anaesthetise
  My flock of sheep from the shadows
    Who do deeds for men
  For the price of a shilling...

  They deserve no better than the abattoir
  Hence I roam the night looking, waiting
    I think number 4 is in sight...

  'Would you like a ride in my carriage miss?'
   'Here It'll cost you a shilling you know'
  'Well, why don't we make it 5 shillings eh?'

             Last Night
          JACK THE RIPPER  
          Strikes Again.  His Fourth Victim.
