In search of masculinity

In search of masculinity
Small minds, with big shotguns
They search the wetlands shooting ducks
They love to call this fun
In the lovely peace of the wetlands
In the early hours of morn
Our ducks they swim there peacefully
Till mayhem, it is born.

The sound of shotguns going off
They frighten all these bird
As they swim there so peacefully
The poor birds they are stirred
And fly away in blind panic
As our hero’s shoot them down
The ugliness of human beings
Oh, how it makes me frown.

Not all these birds are killed out right
For many get away
And have to lie there suffering
Sometimes for many days
Who was it, gave our humane race?
The title of humane
I think that folk who live to kill
They live their lives in vain.
