Flog Like an Egyptian

This slave-driving highborn Egyptian
was a sadist defying description
Surveying the Nile
each day he would smile
at the chance he could get a few whips in

Vincent Price as Baka, the whip-wielding master builder in The Ten Commandments (Cecil B. DeMille. 1956); with Debra Paget, Edward G. Robinson and John Derek. Image source:
