Wings of a Stingray (Warrick Sony)
wing tips touch the water
flying ducks to the slaughter
bird flu across the lake
across the ocean they hesitate
here's to our feathered friends
who're losing out on dividends

Lets eat in Town
beneath my eiderdown
Foie gras pâté
wings of a stingray

bang your plate for Chairman Mao
keep the sparrows in the air for now
keep them flying till they drop
protect your country and your crop
cough into your gloves
then shake
the outstretched hand
of every delegate
Lets eat in Town
beneath my eiderdown
Foie gras pâté
wings of a stingray
