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.
