I'm not a sniper

23 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I spot my mark on summit high

Or nestled entrenched in a plain

Bring barrel leveled, crosshairs nigh

Intent on delivering pain

Perhaps their souls I may recall

Destruction might be what I crave

Or one by one they all might fall

Each enemy into his grave

The naked victim hides in fright

Secluded and yielding not

Though badly battered, thus he might

Confound my nefarious plot

A guess:

Using a floss-pick to clean teeth?

The first thing I thought was "Hamsters!" And then I thought, Lawlz, nefarious plots, like mine!

Neither dental equipment nor a small furry critter. It's still early, so I'll hold off hinting about the clues pointing elsewhere for now.

Not baseball, due to the clue about a naked victim hiding.

Neither shooting cans, too much like actual sniping from the title.

Nor an eagle, for if a rabbit were to dive into a burrow, or a fish dive deep underwater to escape (for instance), it wouldn't be akin to going to a grave.

Golf. They each have their own graves. Not quite sure about the naked victim though. Will have to keep thinking about that one.

My guess time

pool/billiards?

The nakedness would be the cue ball. I don't think this fits with the first part of the plain and hill though

Those are actually the lines that made me think of it. I was putting up a fence last month (or the month before) and had poor quality screws. Have you ever tried to drill in a bent or damaged screw? It doesn't work very well. =(

can/can opener

but agree with guppy - think Mo Ma has it. :duh:

was worried with that last one, plasmid had figured he'd thrown just about everything at us. sure was glad to see another fantastic "I'm not" riddle!

EDIT:

maybe as in a rounded off Philips head

@Mo Mo....no i have not tried to put up a fence lately....sry :P but yh i get it now... kinda matches the meaning of the second stanza... i think.. otherwise i have that one wrong too which would be bad -__-' we seem to have lost another one to the pro solver ... you guys should be banned from riddles till like a few more guess... give us lesser solvers a chance :dry:

@plaingazed... i mentally slapped myself as well... :duh:

another awesome riddle plasmid! :D

ahahahaha i was just realized that we've solved and agreed on the answer and given credits ....and plasmid isn't here to confirm it :P

You hit the nail on the head. So to speak.

Yep, that's how I like it :)

Edit: The last stanza is talking about screws where the groove that the screwdriver sits in has been worn out, so the screwdriver can no longer get a grip and the screw can no longer be removed from whatever it's embedded in. They're commonly referred to as screws that have been "stripped"

here's what I thought. I think it may work just as well as the intended answer

a needle

consider needles for injecting and also extracting. and their use for supplying medicine or drugs and it fits all the lines I think. possibly better since 'pain' and 'souls' have a more literal meaning in this case
