Sparrow with militant glitter in your eye
Gripping the balcony's iron rail without,
Though only late I saw you put to rout
Scores of contentious rivals, win your high
Supremacy with dictatorial claws,
And wrest from every emulating rival
Vantage that life accords to fit survival,
Now in unsated wrath I see you pause,
Your gaze turned unappeased in hostile search;
In dark uncertainty you seem to glower,
Still discontented with your empty power
You glance about from your uneasy perch,
Seeking unconquered worlds to fight anew,
Since none will challenge, none now envy you!
