The theme and or message of this poem is tp avoid having delusions of grandeur.  The hyena is a legend in his own mind.  He sees himslef as a fierce beast.  However , Hyenas are scavengers and thus are only fierce when it comes to dead opponents.  It would be like Michael Jordan playing against kindergartners and then thinking he is awesome for kicking their butts.
