I came out of the bar
There they were
In the shadows
At the edge
Of the parking lot

There was one
Then Two
Then Three
Then Four

Their masks
Eternally in place
They looked at me
With beady eyes

I wondered
What I might have to give them...
They certainly weren't impressed
With my leftover dinner of

At length
I tossed them some crackers
And they scrambled to get them
And made their escape

I idly thought of capturing one of them
Then thought better of it
It could have ended badly
One never knows
How they'll react
When they're cornered

It's always cool
Getting to feed
A pack of raccoons

Too adorable, Ken!! I love raccoons, too, but as Karla said, our aunt Barbara had to get rabies shots (OW!) after the raccoon she was feeding bit her. NOT good, but I am glad to say that our aunt is doing a LOT better and learned her lesson well!! (I would too if that happened to ME! YIKES!! 13 shots right in the belly...OWWWWW!!)

I love this write; very well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
