    Sutcliffe's Spectre

    Stalk, thou shalt,
    In blackened moonlight,
    O'er yorkshire's maidens,
    Easy prey,
    Reigning fear,
    With each hammer blow,
    Striking your judgment,
    Lives you took away,
    Sutcliffe's spectre,
    Bourne of malice,
    Your citadel crumbles,
    But never fades,
    In tomes, and pictures,
    You last forever,
    But freedom is ours now,
    From your bitter rage.
