Question

The smartest thing I’ll ever do,

Is make harmonic rhymes for you.

You never eat, at least I’m told.

You never ask about my gold.

The slightest, nuanced turn of phrase,

Should not suffice to shift your gaze.

I always wondered what it’s for,

As glowing embers burnt the floor.

The last republic which it stands,

Was often in divided lands.

Birds will sing in mocking tones,

And fish swim over sailor’s bones.

When lies eliminates the true,

Then some violence is due.

None will ever “guess” this riddle

You may need someone’s help, a little.

So, you're saying this riddle can't be answered as it stands? Why don't you add some more to it, then? As that doesn't seem fair.

I think of the great flood/rainbows.

I meant that you could not "guess" it but when you figure it out you will know it is right.

Great answer but unfortunately wrong :ph34r:

Ring. I can explain, if you like. But, if it isn't right, no need for the bother.

Not really anything to do with a Leprechaun, really and I am not lying.

Seriously, even though the more I say it may seem like I am lying but I am not, not telling the truth about that. :huh:;)

Not looking away!

Imerpialism?

I don't know, you said the answer was in that post, and I think someone guessed empire already(could be wrong though).

A raging fire a funeral PIRE, an unexpected, cremation. PIRE?

Nope.

I know that you are just trying to get some meaning from my "hint", but you are barking up the wrong ladder.

Even someone with dyslexia like me knows that pyre is spelled with a "y" ;)

P.S. Typing is much better than writing, because of spell check.

Am I right or what!

P.P.S.

Just between you and me, I have noticed a grammar mistake that does not affect the outcome:

When lies eliminates the true

should be:

When lies eliminate the true
