Wrongful Imprisonment (The Devil's Whore)

(Link)
John Lillburne surveys his cell and reflects on his life. He’s been in prison before of course, he’s been whipped for speaking out, but this time it’s different. This time the one who has imprisoned him was once a friend. This time he’s been sent to Jersey, because the writ of habeas corpus does not apply here, so it’s not unlawful, not really. This time there are no pens, no paper, no light.

And without pen and paper he cannot continue his fight. And once the fight has gone, the mind goes too, and impending insanity becomes the final jailer.

I really like your Devil's Whore stuff, and this is great, so poignant and terrible.

Thank you. I'd been wanting to write something on this for a while and your drabble challenge has given me both the opportunity and the inspiration to do so.
