I’ve Got This Sinking Feeling In My Gut

Hello Fiends,

Here is another excerpt from a little book of death poems I am writing called ‘101 Ways To Die, Accidents, Murders, And Other Techniques To Lose A Life’. This little morsel involves our favorite Victorian serial killer with a penchant for organ removal. Enjoy!

I’ve Got This Sinking Feeling In My Gut

In the hours past midnight
Taking a shortcut home
Down a damp, dark alley
Chilled to the bone

A hard day on the job
Not the profession you think
A harlot, a whore
A woman of the streets

As the fog rolls in
Not a human in sight
The sound of footsteps
Fills your body with fright

A quick glance behind
But no one is there
Just your mind playing tricks
Then a shadow appears

You scream for help
Hope to be saved
Too fast, he’s upon you
With the glint of his blade

Away from prying eyes
Murder most foul
A slit across the throat
Then surgically disemboweled

Thanks for reading,
~Curtis Rx

    *love* it. Anything Jack the Ripper related is always my favorite things ever.

  2. Oh my, that poem was so ghastly, and horrendous. I liked it a lot! Keep up the ghoulish tales 😀

  3. Abbi

    How terrible! I love it!

  4. Grimm13

    Absolutely amazing good sir!

    And perfectly creepy that you would right a poem about ol’ saucy Jack whilst I am writing a story that starts off with him. I think I channeled too much of you a while back.


  5. Jamie Horror

    So sinister and dark. Love it! (:

  6. You, sir, are a brilliantly sadistic man. And I, for one, LOVE IT! Every one of these is absolutley gutwrenching (pun intended). It’s very Poe-esque. Of course, I’m sure you meant it that way, being all inspired by him and such. Anyhoo, well done! 10 out of 5 chainsaws!

  7. joanne

    that was good! I’d may have hit upon the suspected origins of jack, like his aristocracy. but i liked that you hinted towards the surgical precision with which the poor lasses were relieved of their organs for the daily grind, pun intended!

    A great death!!!!! The images coming in my head,
    a London time…
    one blade with a smile
    teeth in the shine!
    luv you dear one

    Perfect. Just perfect.

  14. haha, oh BRILLIANT.
    Funny, that I was just thinking of the Batman Brave and the Bold episode where they have their own answer for Jack the Ripper….which happens to Gentleman Ghost…hmm. Was that a little off topic? Pardon me.

  15. STrabius

    This is wonderful. Well written and gory, I love it.

  16. mandieville666
