Commandment III
 
*“Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh
his name in vain.”
 
the chair of that character called
“judas”
made of dark oak
bearing 1,500 iron spikes
covering the
arm-rests, the seat, as well as the
leg-rests, foot-rests & back of the chair---
razor-sharp & ground fine---
honed to
rip &
slash &
tear, lacerate, fray &
gash
the
flesh---
the good believer would hold down the
wrists, tying them down with leather straps
&
rusting metal bars across the torso to press the body
back into the piercing
spikes
while underneath the chair
beneath the hole carved in the seat
lies a hearth of seething hot coals
whose flames rising up
burn the muscles of the thighs.
 
the penetrated wounds were closed off by the
spikes themselves and in doing so
the torturous death could be prolonged
for days.
 
 
*The work of fiction called “The Bible”
