Apocalyptic Riddle

9 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Claws in caves around the globe,

Grabbing weapons, letting go.

War declared against a tribe—

Soldiers poised, side-by-side.

Bombs set loose to topple towers,

All applaud their well-aimed power.

Oh world unstable, spinning free!

Brought down in sound trajectory!

I love it when people make assumptions with my riddles; it means they usually last longer.

This just seems to fit too well to be far off

Claws in caves around the globe, (Bats have claws, are in caves, and are found around the globe)

Grabbing weapons, letting go. (At first I was confused - what clawed animals use weapons? But the bats aren't grabbing weapons; the weapons are their claws which are grabbing their perch on the cave and letting go when they're leaving to hunt)

War declared against a tribe— (Some bats are known to hunt other bats.)

Soldiers poised, side-by-side.

Bombs set loose to topple towers, (I certainly don't know of animals that use bombs, but if you interpret this as meaning that the bats themselves ARE the well-aimed bombs which can topple animals that tower much larger than themselves...)

All applaud their well-aimed power.

Oh world unstable, spinning free!

Brought down in sound trajectory! (They definitely use echolocation.)

But now just watch, I bet the real answer is gonna end up being something man-made!

Oops. Re-write:

Claws in caves around the globe,

Grabbing weapon, letting go.

War declared against a tribe—

Soldiers poised, side-by-side.

Bomb set loose to topple towers,

All applaud its well-aimed power.

Oh crushing world, spinning free!

Thrown down in sound trajectory.

Strike! Good job. Quick too. Maybe I shouldn't have edited?

Actually, the last line didn't have much bearing for me. Well-crafted riddle though... really enjoyed working my way through the lines!
