Question

Stretch out thy neck for the widow's knife,

Twist not away from thy gradu'l path.

When it has finished, there will be strife.

(As well, a mark-ed absence of wrath!)

No, you'll need some references before googling will work.

It having been a few days, I'll say that

Tonybz was sort of closest so far.

No, not those. I'm afraid I'd probably never write a riddle involving Jager because it makes me gag. :wacko: Lots of other alcohols I would tho! :lol:

Bloody Mary? For the first line

:D

The cutting/cropping of grape vines?

Neither of those, sorry! & KLee, welcome to the Den! :)

(But, for the future, please hide your answer using a "spoiler" so those that don't want to look don't have to! Thanks! :D )

hmmmm another shot i believe im stretching it with this one

opening a shaken soda can? Stretch out thy neck for the widow's knife, (opening the tab) Twist not away from thy gradu'l path.(no stopping the pressure) When it has finished, there will be strife. ( when it explodes) As well, a mark-ed absence of wrath! (its not really violent rather messy)

sabrage, the act of opening a bottle of champaigne with a sword?

Stretch out thy neck for the widow's knife, - obvious reference to the use of a sword

Twist not away from thy gradu'l path. - not opening the bottle by the traditional way of twisting the cork out

When it has finished, there will be strife. - lots and lots of bubbles

(As well, a mark-ed absence of wrath!) - according to my friend Wiki, if sabrage is done correctly it results in little loss of the champaigne (assuming the "wrath" is interpreted as "grapes of wrath"?

sabrage, the act of opening a bottle of champagne with a sword?

Not what I intended - an interesting thought, but my interpretations differ.

I can't help but think it has to be like what the guy said with the sword and the champage, only the widow's "knife" is a bottle opener; then you don't twist the cork out, you pull straight out; the strife is obviously the fizz/bubbles, then the absence of wrath is the "widow" getting a little tipsy and forgetting her lost partner??? going WAY out there for this one
