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:

spray...???

that's a very very good answer. definitely the right flavor for these. in my defense, it's tough to limit to a single answer with a single couplet without making it too obscure. am a little worried that how the second line relates to the answer is not so common knowledge. Still, the trick to this one is a different meaning of a key word that I think will then quickly direct to the answer sought.

not that DD, but think you're working off the best starting word.

bug...???

nope, thought your previous answer was more in line with DD's above but see a connection with this answer as well. another great guess.

Honey?

yes indeedy, DD.

maybe pushes the realm of common knowledge for which I think these riddles should qualify but local honey purportedly alleviates allergies/hayfever

Novel?

and yes again, Wilson. nicely done

Down to the final answer -

...as referring to a bee. Same thinking on sensitive reactions except they cause them, and they are the local defender of the honey.

Excellent riddle my pastry pal!

Well that's obviously a constant struggle of mine. Nice solve Wilson!

Tensions are eased, could increase the traction - thaw by Wilson

Delivered the pitch with utter success

Striking a chord, you had to confess - sung by DudleyDude

and the final answer is an anagram of the above answers excluding the first letters (NOHINTS) which, along with the title and last rhyme

of the OP, hopefully served as clues to both the final answer and how to get there - when you havent got a clue by Wilson
