Jack the Ripper

Oh ladies of the evening.
So vulnerable were you.
Victims of a man obsessed.
Too soon you bid adieu.

He used your trust of strangers.
To lure you into harm. 
How could you know what dangers?
Awaited in his charm. 

His evil lurked in corners.
A heart that was decayed.
Silent his seduction.
His tool a sharpened blade.

A killer with precision.
Perhaps a healing man.
His mind deformed and twisted.
A devil with a plan.

Evading capture for all time.
His crimes were never paid.
Buried secrets, still unsolved.
A mystery, he stayed.

    But now forensic scientists Want to solve the clues So many years from way back then They give the girls their dues DNA genetic codes And profiles from the case Help to link together All the crimes that then took place This story could go on and on And never reach an end Just like the man who started it Will never make amend Another great poem Samia. Thanks for stirring the juices in my brain. They needed it. :-)

    Hey Rockman, It's really something else that he got away with these crimes but then again there was no DNA evidence back then. I'm so glad you liked it and it helped to get your juices flowing! :)

    Good write.... He a had to be someone of prominence, pre-dna period. Cruel but intelligent, for never being caught.it

    Hi The Scribe, Thank you very much. Yes, I agree with that he was probably someone of prominence. Also that he was clever for never being caught. :)
