22. The Woods

Terrible Tarot


Placement: The Obscure Arcana

Description: The interior of a dark and dense forest. There are no people. There is a suspicious lack of animals. What are they hiding from? Is there a predator on the loose? What’s that shadow? AAAAAAA!

Right side up:

If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise. If you go down to the woods today, you’d better go in disguise, for every bear that ever there was will gather there together because we have been encroaching upon their natural habitat and the wilderness hungers for vengeance.

You cannot see the forest for the trees. There is nothing wrong with your vision. A forest is a collective noun describing a large enough group of trees. If one could see collective nouns, the police would arrest crows for murder and we might assume that Guy Fawkes harboured a grudge against owls.*
