The Suitors

Mom's note: Emperor was asked to write what he thinks would happen after Odysseus lands in Ithaca. The spelling and punctuation have been edited, but this is his story as it was written otherwise.

The suitors sang, "Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow. Everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go!" Every thing tumbled down. Crack! Crack-a-boom! Ting!


"Now you did it, you suitors! What do you have to say for yourself?" said Odysseus.


"I'm a suitor," said a suitor.

"What else?" said Odysseus.

"I'm innocent."

"No, you aren't."

"Yes I am."

Penelope caught the suitors in a net. Odysseus opened the door. Penelope threw them out the door. Bye-bye.

"Give me a second chance!"

"Nope."

They locked the door. The buzzing of bees made the suitors remember that they were kicked out by Odysseus and Penelope. They wanted to get revenge. They stole his boat and sailed away to Calypso's island. When they got there they told Calypso that Odysseus was dead. She recognized their lie and said, "No, he's not." She came and saw she was right.

The end.
