Commandment X

 

*“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’ s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.”

 

while there have been numerous ways to maim

and not really

kill

but instead to extract what you wanted from an individual

to punish

& then possibly destroy them---

the most popular of all ways

which the good believers used to kill those that they thought had

violated their system of beliefs

through

“witchery”

&

thieving,

was most definitely

burning them at the stake

 

used primarily in the middle ages but still

practiced through further history,

the accused was bound to a stake---a tall

wooden pole, or often tied from an overhanging board with their arms spread upward

sometimes they were kneeling close to the ground---

regardless,

the more famous & detested the individual was,

the more good believers that would

encircle the accused

and watch with wide open eyes

as they burnt to death

 

some would scream their way into asphyxiation

while inhaling the large clouds of smoke

billowing from the fire built beneath them---

some would bleed from the burning flesh & die of

shock

from the large amount of blood spilling out

 

either way, if they kept their eyes open

for as long as they could

they would drown in a myriad of smiles

surrounding them.
