Question

Posted · Report post

Pet, attack, and draw forth blood

Sink your fangs and bring a flood

Summon spirits armed to kill

Bind them to my heinous will

You've seen your final living day

Now face your indolent decay

You won't reach heaven, I'll be terse:

This land of milk and honey's cursed!

The light at the end of your tunnel is me

I bring no salvation and bound you shall be

The blood that courses through my veins,

Bewitched, it is. Corrupt! Profane!

My baneful touch will leave you numb

Be sure, my Gods bring worse to come

Prepare to face the hellish flames

As pitchforks stab, play twisted games

Should you escape their wrath so black

Be rest assured, I'll bring you back

:(

Novacaine?

Tooth extraction?

Not where I'm going with this one.

Indeed, this time I went back and removed anything that seemed like much of a "smoking gun" clue. But I hope there are still enough little things to make the answer fairly satisfying on the second reading.

:blink:
I am reminded of the Salem Witch Trials with this one. Especially the pitchforks bit at the end.

No so far to the above. The answer to this riddle is nothing so "tragically malicious" (to abuse the old slogan). Hence the name of the riddle.

An addiction like alcohol or worse... like heroin being shot into a junkies vein.

Hmm, going back and reading it, it does seem like

IV drugs

would fit pretty well with the riddle. A good answer, but still a rather concrete interpretation. And too evil.

Addiction to food isn't it either

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Indolent may refer to:

a) Laziness

b) A music label owned by Bertelsmann Music Group.

c) In medicine, a process that progresses slowly, without causing much pain.

i think it has something to do with c)

I hadn't realized the ambiguity of the term "indolent". My intent was indeed C: slow progression of a pathological process.

Something along the lines of a voodoo witchdoctor turning someone into a zombie. But that would be pretty evil so I don't think it's right.

The only other thing that keeps popping into my head is the end part with the fire and the pitchforks makes me think of food. This is another tough one.

Still not really in the neighborhood yet. What I have in mind is almost comical compared to the darkness of the riddle.

Earlier drafts had some clues that I thought might be too much of a giveaway; if no one solves it while wasting time at work/school over the next 24 hours I'll post an earlier version.

so hello all, im pretty new at this.... but i think the answer is this:

a prison?

Pet, attack, and draw forth blood

Sink your fangs and bring a flood

Summon spirits armed to kill

Bind them to my heinous will

You've seen your final living day

Now face your indolent decay

You won't reach heaven, I'll be terse:

This land of milk and honey's cursed!

The light at the end of your tunnel is me

I bring no salvation and bound you shall be

The blood that courses through my veins,

Bewitched, it is. Corrupt! Profane!

My baneful touch will leave you numb

Be sure, my Gods bring worse to come

Prepare to face the hellish flames

As pitchforks stab, play twisted games

Should you escape their wrath so black

Be rest assured, I'll bring you back

i think my answer fits everything pretty well besides the one line in red.

Oooh, is it :

A snake? The second verse seems to relate to the Garden of Eden, not reaching Heaven, land of milk and honey etc.

The binding and numb references seem like a snake; wrapping around something, poisonous venom etc.

The pitchfork reminds me of its 2 fangs?

Any good?
