I am the lion and the sparrow

Howard Nemerov | The Sparrow in the Zoo

The Sparrow in the Zoo
By Howard Nemerov

No bars are set too close, no mesh too fine
To keep me from the eagle and the lion,
Whom keepers feed that I may freely dine.
This goes to show that if you have the wit
To be small, common, cute and live on shit,
Though the cage fret kings, you may make free with it.
