The Unexpected Hero

So judge not heroes by their size, For courage gleams in different eyes.

The Unexpected Hero

A timid mouse, in shadows hid, Watched giants stomp, their laughter skid. A bully king, with booming voice, Taunting a kitten, tiny choice.

β€πŸ‘πŸ₯°

The mouse, no knight in shining fur, Yet courage bloomed, a gentle stir. He squeaked, a sound barely heard, But the king paused, attention stirred.

The kitten, brave but cornered tight, Saw hope ignite in moonlit night. The mouse, a blur, a fearless dash, Nipped the king's heel, a daring flash.

❀😊

Chaos erupted, giants bumbling, Kitten escaped, fear crumbling. The tiny hero, safe and sound, Had turned the tide, on bravery's ground.

πŸ˜ƒβ€

So judge not heroes by their size, For courage gleams in different eyes. A whiskered friend, a heart so bold, The king was humbled, story told.

The giants roared, their anger hot,

The mouse, once bold, began to blot.

But then, a ripple through the crowd,

A whisper spread, voices unbowed.

"A tiny hero, what a sight!"

They cheered, their laughter tinged with light.

The king, embarrassed, lost his might,

His reign of terror took to flight.

❀

The mouse, now lauded, fur held high,

With kitten friend, beneath the sky.

A message clear, for all to see,

True courage hides where it can't be.

β€πŸ€”

So, let this tale a lesson bring,

Of small deeds making giants sing.

For power shifts, when hearts unite,

Against the wrong, even mice take flight.
