His Legend Secure



Having just reviewed the flick The Lodger, it popped into my mind to republish one of my favorite pieces on here. After all, it was inspired in many ways by the legendary serial killer, Jack the Ripper. Since I was younger, when I picked up my first book on the Ripper at the Salvation Army (I actually still have it), his mystery has always intrigued me. Check it out and tell me what you think...
His Legend Secure
(as seen in  Realm of Horrotica)

Suddenly the message is clear
Embers to ashes
Day to night
The tapestry falls silently into the ravine
Spirits of the lost engulf this realm
Their homecoming is near
Ignite the torch
Open the void
Raise the dead
Another victim will appear

This night if foreign
The angels have vanished
The recluse lives
The madams' parlor is full
Her crystal reflecting every tear
Her coffers bursting from remorse
Silence befalls the guilty
His hand grasps the knife
Torturous exploits so refined
Yet, horrific

The blade slices her abdomen
Mutilates the face
Blood stained tears appear on the pillow
Her soul in limbo
Trophies line the library walls
Trinkets of pleasure found in a ravenous rage
The head of a lion
The heart of a whore
The flavor untouched
The thrill unmatched

The next victim on the corner
Her perfume masks the disease
The viral rot infesting her womb
A daggers edge silenced the wench
Milk oozing from her bosom
Time for the sacrifice
927 yards to the East lay another sow
Her labia in hand
Her virginity destroyed
Panic rises from the calm

Suddenly his message is clear
Charcoal to embers
Night to day
The dissertation is just
His rise to prominence foretold
More streetwalkers return for their wage
A new day on tap
His knife sharpened
His bag in place
His legend secure
