Ninja Granny I - The Rescuer

Folks say his mother used to read Stories of ancient warriors indeed, To give birth to a child as brave As a legend beneath a historic grave. 'Achilles'- She used to call her son And he grew up, fascinating like none, Granny still zealous, planted ardor aboard His mother gifted him a fervent sword. Ninja granny took him to a wonderland Where he was hailed as a warrior grand, Every day he read of kings in wars Every night he escaped worldly doors. That night he was woken by an alphabet It was an 'A' shivering in cold sweat, "Achilles our savior, we need thee To release our inmates and set them free." Arose Achilles to the land of words Where stories flew past like birds, Colored houses of phrases spoken Missing alphabets from windows broken. The morning sun made up of a sentence Pleaded Achilles for their independence, Leaving A and C all had been caught Their land left with stories that fought. Achilles swayed his little gifted sword Headed to the prison he'd never explored, Oh what courage flowed in his veins Passionate to free alphabets of chains. The prison of punctuation was guarded By creepy spelling mistakes disregarded, He fought valiantly and killed them all Released alphabets from the prison wall. He met the King of Punctuation Marks Demanded to know why he fired sparks, "Achilles the brave! We hail thee We were ruined by an unknown flea. But now that you have saved our land I plead you to let our message expand, When people in the world pen their tales Let them punctuate or the train derails. As long as punctuation stays alive Their stories will flutter and strive, Or else mistakes might attack us again Their follies will make our enemies gain." Brave Achilles narrated to granny on his way back, Tired, dozed off dreaming of another exciting track, He mumbled "Hold on! I come to save the world afar"; Granny closed his book, tomorrow The Alexander or a Czar? Poet's Note: Experimenting with the funny granny series, this is my first tale.
