Confused From The Start

Question

Posted · Report post

A one word solution for each following rhyme

Then another as usual, found differently this time

That lunatic is a hard case to crack

Once that's overcome you needn't turn back

Even when mild there's no need to exclaim

Just seriously promise that you'll do the same

After combing the scene such sweet surrender

For sensitive reactions a local defender

So it takes the cake, you cover the spread

As a result, a cold streak, could end you up dead

If at first it seems quite the exception

The more you read into it betters perception

Losing its cool when springs into action

Tensions are eased, could increase the traction

Delivered the pitch with utter success

Striking a chord, you had to confess

At first you might think you've found what to use

But contrary to that, more puzzling ensues

FWIW - links to similar ones from before:

HEY EDM - not those, dont think the main word you were working off of for this one is the best to "interpret" for this one. am hoping a couple of others in that line will direct to the answer.

care, sooth(ing)

paradox, odd

brake(s)

well hello araver - good to see you on this side of the Den. definitely get were you're coming from with the above. all are quite good responses but not what I have in mind. hopefully there is some word play going on which might better restrict the answers. some literal interpretations and unexpected meanings of idiomatic phrases and the like is kinda my trademark.

Ah, just re-read it:

ABS (against braking fits better)

still not it but again, quite clever.

distinct ?

hey t_l - not it, sorry

proof

slick

and not those, fabpig though good thoughts as always.

just the head - you pretty much got it. was going for just "nut" as in a crazy person, single seeded fruit, or basic operating expenses

not it but will say you have correctly parsed part of my madness

Losing its cool when springs into action

Tensions are eased, could increase the traction

A jacuzzi

not that but do like your logic

Thank you. I can see your trademark from previous ones and I like it. Afraid my grasp on English is not good enough to solve, but it is good enough to enjoy the riddles. :)

Yet another not so unexpected meaning interpretation: oil?

not my intentions to be crude. ;) sweet yes, I get it and really like your interpretation. exactly in the right style of these but still looking for something different. your english is superb, araver. have noticed that from when I first noticed your location and came to assume you were a displaced american. I do hope you continue to enjoy.
