Insignificant


Small, insignificant little sparrow
Just think if I had shot you with an arrow
Not because of hate or a food demand
But only because I hold a weapon in my hand
There you are perched upon my garden fence
You show me no self preservation or any defense
Now you timidly look to your left and right
I wonder are you scared and maybe take flight
So why not I end your life maybe with a gun
And that is not from hate, but it’s merely for fun
You now stare at me as I contemplate my next move
I wonder now what you are trying to prove
Now at you with my weapon I will take careful aim
I have no pity and I will show no mercy or shame
But then in the air you fly high and probably far away
Maybe I will end your life on another day
But now I hear a squawk and I look up skyward
There I see you’re flying and you're no coward
You're flying and you are watching where I am heading
Now I think maybe that situation I should be dreading
Then unto my humiliation and also to my disgrace
You drop your feces and it lands upon my face
Earlier I was thinking about needing to kill you dead
I was shown the insignificant was mine Instead
Fly away little sparrow I will bother you know more
You showed me my weakness as I showed yours before.

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
