Jack the Ripper

Written by: Samia Ali Arroyo

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.
