Sherlock Holmes and Jack The Ripper: A Haiku

Holmes had Jack in lab
electrocuted him because
The courts would acquit

When you’re as important in society as Jack was, the Old Bailey would never convict.

So Sherlock Holmes took matters in his own hand.

Years later, Nikola Tesla would re-enact Holmes’ test for his friend Mark Twain.
But without using a living subject like the great British detective did.

    Nice one! 😀
    Holmes is more punisher-esque in this version!

      I thought as the writer of a Jack The Ripper novel yourself, Malkie, you’d enjoy this scenario. 🙂

    But for his life of crime
    Jack was resurrected to death
    Just like a Hollywood Frankenstein

    (sorry Chris … I no do haiku)

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, Jack, Frankenstein, Dracula and Sherlock Holmes are being resurrected all the time.

      And now the Force, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and Hans Solo as well.
