Shaming

Barbary pirates

Herded over to the rockface.  Shoved into line looking up at the ledge.  Staring up at their shipmate strung-out above.
They were shattered  ..  hours in the heat  ..  whip cracking over their backs all the long damned day.  All they wanted was grub and sleep.  Tomorrow this started all over again.  They just wanted to get back  ..  back to that sweat-hole  ..  lose this hell in their sleep.

But they’d been herded over ..  to look up at their shipmate.  Fearing  ….
This couldn’t end well  …..
