A Mouse to Man


A mouse
is nothing but
a small
animal of the world.
Tis thus an
insignificant part
of all the world,
no more.

A man
is like
unto a mouse,
for he is nothing but,
a small
animal of the universe.
Tis thus an
insignificant part
of all the universe,
no more.

    You sure hit the nail on the head, but sadly the way man has treated his fellow man, and his natural environment, we obviously don't really recognize just how small and insignificant we really are. Great job. Best regards, Brian. (Report) Reply

    I really don't know where to begin. This poem explains it perfectly. Man is a small animal in the universe. Too bad he don't seem to realise that though :)

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
