The Naked Man (Writing Challenge Day 4)

A naked man is tied up on a thick pole. His arms are stretched way above his head, tied up in a clean knot. His eyes are blindfolded, his mouth gagged. His nipples have washpins clipped on them. Written in purple ink all over his torso are the words ‘slut’ ‘tramp’ ‘whore’ ‘son of babylon’ ‘bitch’.


As the lights slowly fade in, he attempts to talk through the gag, yet it comes off as a sad whimper. The lights continue flashing. The naked man trembles.


A little boy enters.



When I grow up, I wanna be just like daddy!
