  • J T R haiku

    Jack the Ripper stole
    Mary Jeanette Kelly's heart
    Because he loved her.

    I've been editing all day. I think I 've succumbed to unbalanced inverted comma syndrome.

    Here's my submission:

    Was a quack doctor who had
    No use for women.

      I think we've started a new classifiction! Definitely losing it

        Many thanks, Bill.

        I have a knack for poetry, but haven't dabbled with it for a long time. Love haikus, one of the easiest forms to do, if you count the syllables right.

        Think I stumbled across your Crippen site the other day. Looks fascinating.

          You're on a sharp learning curve - no pun intended!

              Ah, I thought you meant this site. My reply made no sense in the correct context. Now I'm not on my phone - I can see quite clearly.
              And thank you for the comment regarding crippen.

                Not bad! Poem river is an interesting image.

                  No worries. Yes, I was trying to research your question about Neave's dad, and the only hits were ancestry sites, this Casebook thread, and your website. Think we'll need to get a newspaper title to find out more. thanks

                      Yes I know. A haiku is not supposed to rhyme but I couldn't resist.

                      Women murdered night
                      by night: The whole of London
                      shakes, rendered in fright.

                              Walking among you
                              Guilty passions, dark secrets
                              Are never revealed
                              Your evening of swing has been cancelled.
