Literary – June 27

I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,
When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore,—
When he beats his bars and he would be free;
It is not a carol of joy or glee,
But a prayer that he sends from his heart’s deep core….

Paul Laurence Dunbar, born this date in 1872.

Writing prompt: Write a scene in which your protagonist tries to persuade someone caging your protag that the cage exists even though the captor refuses to see it.
