Deep Knight and Batworm

Faster than a speeding paragraph
Stronger than an erotic poem
Punchier than an Anger Haiku;
its Deep Knight,
the Capital Crusader of Underground Metropolis
ever ready to answer the Deep signal
and battle evildoers
as they commit word crimes.
Aided by the help of the one and only
worm wonder that is Batworm.
When evil stirs it is they who appear
utilising their onomatopoeia
to keep the Metropolis safe
so that poets can ramble on in freedom.
When a metre is broken,
when a syllable is in trouble.
when a rhyme is a crime,
when a sentence lacks sense,
when a word is truly absurd,
they shall be there
in the pause of a breath.
No word crime escapes their sight
for their vigil is eternal
and their eyes can see all
no phrase is beyond their gaze.
Appearing out of the smoke
caused by fearsome flame wars
they go into them
with the grammar of justice
and shield of spelling,
only to then subside and vanish
into the underground's subterranean surface,
reappearing when the call goes out
for freedom, fairness and truth.
Have no fear citizens
for Deep Knight and Batworm
are never too far,
the heroes the Underground
never wanted but might need.
