AnElephantCant forget his USA trip
He visits there just a year or two ago
Of all the wonderful places
Where he meets smiling faces
The old hippy best loves San Francisco
AnElephant is invited by the lovely, and Priceless, Joy to write a piece of Flash Fiction for her challenge, here.
The inspiration comes from the photo provided, below.
The whole city seems to be in a state of terror.
There have been five brutal and apparently unconnected murders in only three weeks.
The savagery of the killings is what most people find so horrific.
Three women and two men, their ages ranging from just nineteen through to forty six, stabbed, slashed and hacked to death.
Each attack appears more frenzied than the previous.
The police are struggling to find any link between the victims.
The local press is fanning the flames of panic, suggesting that the killer, christened the San Fran Slasher, will continue his butchery until he is caught.
This is not true.
I go back to France on Monday.
