Here in the dark dungeon, face down, I lie. Here, where the air is humid and the stone floor is cold, I tremble. I feel around, for there is no light to guide me, and feel only the cold, damp stones beneath me. Here, where criminals await their most deserved fate, I agonize. Like all traitors awaiting execution, here I despair. But I am no traitor; I am a crusader, a pilgrim, a man of God, a man of true faith. Why then, am I here? Why then, are the men of God and of true honour to rot in the Tower while heretics (and traitors!) sit in the Privy Council? The world, I think, is broken.
