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

:(

I failed to notice that two other people posted simultaneously with me last night.

Lest it lead anyone astray, I rescind my former statement

DudleyDude set foot in the neighborhood. And stumpy giraffe is onto something useful.

A surgeon putting someone under for surgery, maybe an organ donation

Or maybe (out there a bit more) a hypnotist

I think the answer is:

A vaccination or antibodies to kill off a cancer or virus. The first verse is talking about sticking in a needle into something and releasing an army

that slowly kills off the virus that will not make it to heaven or come back again. If it does the doctor will do the vaccine again.

I would have to say

A couple of people were sniffing around the answer, but I think I was overzealous in obfuscating it. No vampires or spiders; the antibiotic suggestion was an interesting fit though.

So here's an earlier draft that had more clues. I promise to explain the metaphors I had in mind after it's solved.

Viper, slither 'cross the plains

Find your mark and sink your fangs

Summon spirits armed to kill

Bind them to my heinous will

You've seen your final living day

Now to your tomb, I'll light the way

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

This land of milk and honey's cursed!

The blood that courses through my veins,

Bewitched, it is. Corrupt! Profane!

My icy 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

If you face them, yet persist

You'll soon return into my midst

But, the land of milk and honey is throwing me off. One thing that relates to that could be prions.

A few more guesses that fits part of the riddle: poison, viruses (if you see their fangs as the surface proteins), gangrene, frostbite.

But my gut feeling tells me I'm far off. Lol.

Seeing if this has to do with the fact that I'm a structural biologist?

Nah, nothing work related here. No mad cows, just your everyday stuff. But frostbite, you say?

Refrigerator or freezer?

And with that last stab, Shakeepuddn slays the evil beast!

In case a re-read of the riddle when you know the answer doesn't bring the metaphors to life, here's what I had in mind when writing it

Pet, attack, and draw forth blood

Sink your fangs and bring a flood

or

Viper, slither 'cross the plains

Find your mark and sink your fangs - my power cord, gots fangs and draws lifeblood

Summon spirits armed to kill - electricity's dangerous. don't zap yourself

Bind them to my heinous will

You've seen your final living day - as a rule, food's dead before it gets refrigerated

Now face your indolent decay - slows down the decaying process

or

Now to your tomb, I'll light the way - refrigerator lights up when you open

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

This land of milk and honey's cursed! - well it IS a land of milk and honey

The light at the end of your tunnel is me - again, I'm just fascinated by the refrigerator light

I bring no salvation and bound you shall be - gotta be in tupperware / ziplock, don't want freezerburn

The blood that courses through my veins,

Bewitched, it is. Corrupt! Profane! - refrigerant is bad for the environment

My baneful (or icy) touch will leave you numb - cold is numbing

Be sure, my Gods bring worse to come - you're 'bout to get ate

Prepare to face the hellish flames - cookin'

As pitchforks stab, play twisted games - playing with food

Should you escape their wrath so black

Be rest assured, I'll bring you back

or

If you face them, yet persist

You'll soon return into my midst - LEFTOVERS?! EEEWWWWWWW!!!! This is the EVIL part! Yuk!

I'm not sure how to rate it. I like it but it pissed me off. I had considered that line much earlier but I just couldn't fit the viper slithering and fangs part or summoning spirits, the latter which totally flew o'er head. To me "it" would summon life, function, not death. Well, sure "sparked" some traffic and brainbusting . . and I guess that's a big plus. I give it four just cause I like tough riddles and because I'm still enamored of your honey bees!

Cheers

Haha. Yes, guesses from a fellow biologist.

Interesting answer. :thumbsup:
