He had threatened her with banishment as a punishment he might use for her,

But she never imagined he meant to chain her in the barn with the animals.

She wriggled around as the straw itched her bare skin,

She tried not to think about the bugs and things crawling about.

She whimpered as she hoped he would take pity on her,

Almost any other punishment was more bearable than this.

“I promise to be good Sir” she whispered, knowing he could not hear,

But hoping he would know and come release her.
