Same Old, Same Old

Question

Posted · Report post

Inquire, it's likely that this you will hear

She's not the one, so the other, my dear.

Whenever opportunity presents you might say

Take it from me, it's not better this way.

Announced like a pastimes appropriate host

It's the smallest that often bugs you the most.

Purposely left hanging, though still not a waste

Those fresh too remark, all in good taste.

On the surface there's not much for which to see

When landing the big roll in this great tragedy.

From each of the five you must now find one

Still something's to do, before you are done.

Hey Jkb - not those and Wilson beat you to this one (see just above)

5.Tsunami?

no for 1. (I got my first asterisks on the wrist last night)

yes for 5. Excellent! (yeah, sorry but the next two should not be at issue. sounds like just from mentioning that you've overcome)

5 - tape?

Three down, one and two to go...

A slightly different tactic will be needed I do fear. See where you're coming from but not it. And good to see ya ham!

Correct for #2. Well done! Need something different for #1 which will give maybe more info to the final answer.

another fine response but not it. works perfectly with the first line of this couplet but hopefully you'll agree that the word I have in mind ties in a little better with the second line. please keep at it.

nope, but you're on the right track with the final answer. shhhhh

then I'll guess "neither ", and "knight"

nope, neither of those and you're veering a little off the theme you discovered. you may be able to work backwards. I confess, I made a last second edit to this one which I regret. Do think you can get this one though, especially after nailing #2 which I wasn't sure had enough info to figure.

Right on, well done. And thanks for saving me. This one originally read "said" instead of "likely" to direct the phonetic clue but I switched it without fully realizing what I had done. Hastily thought it shouldn't say "said" and "hear" in the same line.

There's still a little more to the final answer.

Thanks for the riddle! Very clever. I'm going back to the prior ones...just discovered this site and loving it.

Well that's a wrap. Always fun. Wilson - It appears your real disadvantage was the time zone difference and not your accent. I suspect you were clued in to the theme as both herbs and tsunami dont start with silent letters in your parts? I first realized this when you guessed thyme which both fit the clue better and would have solved the accent issue. If it wasnt for that pesky silent e I would have been tempted to switch my answer. All this said is not to take anything away from simmy8. I was really worried about those two. You bailed me out. Really inciteful. Hope you're hooked like the rest of us here.
