Eagle (M's challenge)

I need not be right by might
Or win by cunning evil
Nor slither or hide under rocks
Or swim the ocean deeply
To run the plains I'll leave to you
Or through the trees swinging
So small that I'll cause you pain
Or that damned infernal itching
All these things and many more
I really have no interest
For me to soar the skies so high
To fly like an eagle
I'd slowly circle all around
And watch the world below me
You would look in amazement up
And wish that you'd be flying
