I saw you soar

I saw an ostrich fly
High up in the sky
Whilst an eagle sat
In an opened cage.

I saw a snail ski
Winding down a hill
Whilst a hare snored
By a hunter’s gun.

I saw a Pauper’s boy
Become a princess’ joy
Whilst the prince slept
Peacefully in his puke.

I saw I saw I saw
All you can do to soar
Whilst you dug up reasons
Why it could not be.
