In which the weak shall take their place with impunity by the side of the strong."

from Aesop – The Kingdom of the Lion on Rap Genius

Meaning

Compare the famous Biblical prophecy from Isaiah 11:6, written several centuries later:

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

Aesop isn’t so optimistic.
