SPARING A THOUGHT
After release on her own vow to
attend the Victorian city court
they allowed her onto the footfall
shadowed streets before the cock
crowed, when citizens began their
routines. Screams had been well
muffled during her mutilation by
a gouging knife tearing her apart
How the headlines spoke of it and
glorified the gory tale. Nowadays
there are societies wanting to say
more of it. An American singer did
so in a song called Mack the knife.
Poor woman on the streets trying
so hard to accommodate her needs.
Hearts surely must reach out to her.
