Bloostered in Whitechapel

Jack was a simple man

Living life with a simple plan

Be kind to those around so they don’t suspect

Blend silently into the night so they don’t reflect

Embrace shadows as veils

And cover up your trails

-

He couldn’t help but savour

the frantic shaking and wails

It gave him ecstasy and quavers

until his nature prevailed

-

He chose his canvas carefully, among a swarm of potentials

He walked and stalked dreadfully, in his hand a utensil

-

She walked slowly wavering

in her hand a bottle

Clinking and clacking on the walls

echoing its emptiness around

Clothes doused in her chosen elixir

Vile drink, true, but without it, life was bleak

Memories of the day she had to keep discreet

Forever hidden and shut-

“Best 5 shillings I've spent, that strumpet!”

A man boiled as an owl pointed and talked

She threw the bottle at him and walked

-

Around a dark alley she hobbled and strode

Almost home now, just down this empty road

Suddenly, something glowed

She looked down at her throat

She could feel the coldness of steel

and behind, heavy breathing with zeal

Its edge pressed against her

while his face was concealed

-

A ting of crimson glistened that night

Down that one road in Whitechapel

A faint streetlamp swayed its flickering light

While jack down the road scrambled.
