Sitting alone in the cool essence of the water
It could sense the presence of the unknown
Enjoying the beauty of the world around 
It was unaware of the future it was bound

The stranger would soon appear
It could feel the danger that was near

A splash
Not far away
It knew it's day had come
Hearing the roar of the gun
It fell after seeing the last ray of the sun

The duck was gone
The duck was dead
