seductive and silent
draped scantily with sheer
silken scarfs of varying
degrees of enchantment
the temptress lies gagged
and leather bound to
splintered mahogany bed posts
her restraints like her
White flag of a knife
engrave a souvenir into
tender crying wrists
her blood and tears
take the same erratic road
across her broken body
built for the pleasure
of men and for their express
enjoyment trapped in her
cell characterised by unwashed
sin-filled satin sheets slept
in by the men of means
who bestow whispers of
their engorged wages to
obliging slaves of night
in the house of whores
