Please note: Amelia Dyer is part of my Horror Vault stories and is NOT suitable for younger readers. If this had been a film I would give it a 12A rating. The story contains no strong language but has occasionally some gory moments.
Proceed with caution…
Born in Bristol in 1837,
She looked like an angel, sent down from heaven.
But Amelia Dyer, that cherubic child,
Grew up to be wicked, deviant, and wild!
At five years old, she tortured little kittens,
Hung them upside-down, and stuffed them in her mittens.
Tormenting helpless creatures became her addiction –
Her story’s so grim you might think that it’s fiction.
Her three older brothers, William, Thomas, and James,
Feared their little sister and her sadistic games.
For no one was safe when Amelia was near.
To hurt other people filled her with cheer.
Amelia’s mother lived in constant panic,
Fully convinced that the girl was satanic.
At home, she took care to avoid her daughter,
Sure that she’d be the first one slaughtered.
