Steemit Open Mic Week 132 : Song of the Raccoons(original)

Greetings Steemit!

In the absence of the Songwriter's Challenge, I've been trying to challenge myself and some folks at the open mic that I host in Minneapolis.
The theme I was working with here was 'fish out of water.'

I toyed around with a few ideas, and no matter what, the song ended up being about raccoons.
Raccoons are cool.



I'm hoping that with this out of my system, I can write about other things... if not, get ready for a concept album:D

where is the tapestry? :) @tarotbyfergus you are fantastic huge love to you. great song lol

I just put the tapestry back up a couple of days ago.
I moved, and my new walls are slanted, so it was tricky to hang.

Thank you @soundlegion:D

It's been far too long since I've heard one of your original masterpieces...

...we have pointy hands

that we use just like humans...

This is now stuck in my brain for the foreseeable future... 😂

Excellent entry, and I hope your new-new digs are treating you well. Brightest of blessings to you, @tarotbyfergus! 😊

I couldn't get that line out of my head either. It's pretty much why I had to write the song.
I would sing it in the shower, walking, looking in the mirror, trying to sleep, etc. for 2 weeks.
I'm glad you like it @traciyork:D
