Question

Posted (edited) · Report post

Well it may be a stretch, to idle and stall
Yet 'tis the sound of the Coyote's first call


An English saloon, guzzler of a kind
With room in the front as well as behind


I've got her covered, as she can see
And still on the loose, bearing testimony


Off shore in other words my name thus compounded

And the coolest of circles I can almost be found in


He's no longer available, the inquiry's been submitted
It still isnt legal though, to have him committed


Free rides to the first, then quits lickety split
Different social classes, gets away with it


When put on paper it lacks any bite
But when left alone ferocious it's quite


Well connected as usual are the two of us
Now give me a hand t'beat the system thus


Your fortunes in the balance just may hang
So in seventh heaven those feelings explained



When the eight are known you'll get credit for that
Then for what it's worth there's one more to have at

can see = can see through veil, or eyes uncovered.



still on the loose= loose fitting, not figure hugging

bearing testimony = having to wear something that shows your beliefs, or woman of a certain group/ age.

Ohh. So less focus on definition. Hmm. .

hey Thalia - dont know about less focus on definition. The fifth is actually four different definitions of the same word. There are certainly mere discriptive clues. But generally these are two line What-Am-I's. Of course with a little wordplay most of which is a more literal meaning vs the idiomatic meaning/common use of a phrase. Can think of two instances where the wordplay is different. One of them already discovered by Wilson in the first clue - "'tis the sound of" hinting at a homophone. And a different instance in the sixth one. Hope that didn't throw you off...too much.

Maybe I worded that poorly. I meant the whole line isn't necessarily strictly a definition. More of a description in some cases, as you said.

no worries

walk

yes, that's 99.99% correct, .01% grammatical error

engage (mostly from Wilson)

Wilson's still closer

Well it may be a stretch, to idle and stall

Yet 'tis the sound of the Coyote's first call - while by Wilson

An English saloon, guzzler of a kind

With room in the front as well as behind - sedan by Thalia

I've got her covered, as she can see

And still on the loose, bearing testimony - burka by Wilson

He's no longer available, the inquiry's been submitted

It still isnt legal though, to have him committed

Free rides at first, then quits lickety split

Different social classes, gets away with it - walks by tiger_lily111

But when left alone ferocious it's quite

Well connected as usual are the two of us

Now give me a hand t'beat the system thus
