           Resolution of the Ducks
              Against the Hunter

Sitting ducks, by the
muddy water hole, waiting
like sitting ducks, by

the muddy water
hole, waiting like sitting ducks,
by the muddy wat-

er hole, waiting like
sitting ducks, by the muddy
water hole, waiting

like sitting ducks, by
the muddy waterhole, wait-
ing like sitting ducks.
