See, What Happened Was …

Stumbling around for words, looking a bit guilty as any raccoon just naturally does (or so it seems), this little face tries to explain what happened. This is what was said:

See, What Happened Was
an explanation by A Raccoon

What happened was
The Spider built a web
Whilst I was sleeping
In my den

The spider built a web
O’er my doorway
To my den
From my den

The spider built a web
All the way across
The doorway to my den
The doorway from my den

So, what happened was
I woke from my nap
Got up to go out
Got caught in all the stringy strands

Where the spider built a web
O’er my doorway
To my den
And from my den

The stringy strands stick
Like glue, like glued
In my whiskers
Across my furry face

Not only that
The spider built the web
Set to trap
And trap it did

See, what happened was
The spider built a trap
The web that hugs my face
Where hangs before my very eye

A cobweb bug
caught in stringy strands
A cobweb bug
caught in stringy strands

That hangs before my very eye
A cobweb bug
Caught in stringy strands
He and I

Photo taken in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, USA near the small town of Franklin where this raccoon lives wild and free. … Well, sort of. Free after the cobweb was swept away.
