Question

Posted · Report post

I'm a joke to some, considered least

With me they come to a summer feast.

Joined with shipmates I conjure fear,

Hidden to date, sure to appear.

A single stake to ensnare the beast,

An attentive guard for a jewel out of reach.

Taken from one to frame another

Hours in a day, I and my brothers.

Nothing close so far but I like the beer answer; it's inspirational.

Cheers!

devilled egg for my summer feasts. Eggs come in dozens. Eggs in close quarters, like on a ship, are always a bad idea. I'll go with ye olde boiled egg for now.

No to all.

This one was a little rushed and I'm not that satisfied with lines five and six.

Maybe this revision will help:

5: A bar on a cage to entrap the beast,

6: A crooked stick to keep the beat.

Hmm. It appears the hard riddles are easy and the silly little ones rather difficult.

A tooth?

No one so far. Here's the revised edition with a hint to follow:

I'm a joke to some, considered least

With me they come to a summer feast.

Joined with shipmates I conjure fear,

Hidden to date, sure to appear.

A crooked stick to keep the beat,

A bar on a cage to entrap the beast.

Taken from one to frame another

Hours in a day, I and my brothers.

Mother's Maker

I think it's a ring.

I just can't make sense of some of the lines :)

But I'm not sure who Captain Peg Leg is, unless you mean Ahab. Not the answer.

'Ring' fit for these lines:

Joined with shipmates I conjure fear, (bell ringing)

Hidden to date, sure to appear. (engagement ring...hidden to his date, but sure to appear :))

A bar on a cage to entrap the beast. (ring to chain an animal too)

Hours in a day, I and my brothers. (clock tower rings)

But I had no idea what it would have meant for the others.

Oh well...back to the puzzle. This is a good one.

Good reasoning. And thanks for the kudos. I have another better one waiting in the wings but I'd like to see this one pegged first.

Don't give up!!! :)

Grayven, you're a riot! :D

Well done.

Rib

"I'm a joke to some, considered least."

To rib someone: base humor.

"With me they come to a summer feast."

Yummie July 4th treat!!

"Joined with shipmates I conjure fear,Hidden to date, sure to appear."

"spooky bones"

"A crooked stick to keep the beat, A bar on a cage to entrap the beast."

First part obvious, second: enclose the heart (passion, beast)

"Taken from one to frame another"

Adam and Eve

"Hours in a day, I and my brothers."

24 ribs in a human body.
