London Fog. . .

The spectral exhalations

Of both horses and coachmen

writhing like wraiths wrap’t round

faint lights on the street

 

Hard leather soles

Of young ladies slippers

Tap out sharp cadences

With their hurrying feet

 

Fog from the Thames

Slides easily in

And shrouds the streets

In a greasy skim

 

A young lady of the night

Who would better have stayed in

Stares vacantly at nothing in sight

Her throat slit ear to ear

…in a ghastly grin…

 

Cold cruel eyes,

a scalpel sharp dirk

Another foggy night

Another nasty bit of work

 

Bits and pieces taken

Token body parts

Livers, breasts. and no less

...Still beating hearts! ...

 

Caped figure,

tolling bells

Sounding out

Death knells

 

Jack the Ripper lurking

In shadowed dim-lit door

Stay home tonight…

stay out of sight

 

Else become part

Of London’s lore

 

~David Whalen
