what lurks within

can this be the room where the Ripper was?
Jack the Ripper killed a number of girls
killing ladies of the night without cause
and he gave Scotland Yard greatest more curls

his identity still remains unknown
maybe jack the Ripper wasn’t a man
the name Jack the Ripper is so well known
this room on Osborn Street home to a man

even though his identity not known
a nearby foot print seemed like a huge man
the real Jack the Ripper may not be known
his identity mystery to man

but maybe that room has all the answers
once it is studied by examiners
