Maggie (maggie-swift) The answer to the riddle must be a specific historical battle, document, figure, etc. The answer is posted as a reply to the riddle.

Made of stone, I snake along
Winding like a dragon's long
Tail, I sit, and wait for battle,
Warning as a serpent's rattle.

message 6: by Maggie (new)

Maggie (maggie-swift) Waiting in the shadows, fading from the light,
Watching people play on stage, I'm ready for the fight.
Pulling out my trusty weapon, sneaking up behind,
I quickly pull the trigger, clear the guilt out from my mind.

They are polishing the guillotine.

the last of six,
survived the marrige.
and a coffin draped in gold,
was pulled by the richest carrige.

the people wept,
his mistresses cheered,
the death, history, and wars
were finally cleared.

lol. please, try to make a RIDDLE


message 29: by Maggie (new)

Maggie (maggie-swift) People lying all around
Nothing but the saddened sound
Of drums of war, played in the distance,
Injured fallen need assistance.

A fateful song is written now
By a poet, in the prow.
A house a-burning, people cry
Grab the precious, time to fly.
