The King’s Prison

Joseph sat there, as he did most mornings. Sat there in the dark, sat there in the cold and wet. He looked around him at the dismal abode he had called home for many years. The prison walls were dark and cold, with no real light to shine in, other than the dimly lit torches in the…
