Riddle of Keys


worth a Dollar more than money.

dawn comes at Exclamation’s Point

if there it is at, At shall follow.

Asterisk’s Mark

dotting in Number, 1, 2, then 3

only in darkness my Percent of value may be

And Per Se And I be:

bright as a Caret.


If you think you know what I am,

Prove you don’t know a d… turkey from a ham!

Oh! And if you “like” this without guess

you are a poser at best!

Might I add that whomever solves me first

for them will I add another verse! (IE a link to your blog)


Rewards for winner:

50,000 word critique of book or blog.

Link to blog.

    Was this made by you? Also,do I leave the answer in the comments?

  2. Akira Okihu says:

    Is there something special with this sequence or am I missing something?

  3. Akira Okihu says:

    A pair of glasses?

  4. LindaGHill says:

    The only one missing is the ampersand…
    Is it something “purple”?

  5. Akira Okihu says:

    “Prove you don’t know a dead turkey from a ham” ?
    Or then,is that d… relevant to the riddle?

  6. LindaGHill says:

    Sorry, I can’t spend any more time on it. Hope someone solves your riddle. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Akira Okihu says:

    I am not sure and it’s already getting late. I am going to sleep and if tomorrow it is still unanswered I will try my best to answer it.

  8. I got number like Akira, although in a different order and more of them. I thought Caret – might be an allusion to ‘gold’ as with the beginning of the riddle–but then I googled it, unless it’s a pun. I tried corresponding numbers to my phone keypad, and tried to see if the symbols make any words, “Is 2 late 2” etc. My current string of number on my note pad is 1528253776. I have multiple versions, depending on how you interpret the riddle.
    I thought maybe the answer was “keyboard” then I thought that was too easy. Next I’ll try corresponding the letters to a numerical alphabet. Flip this one is good.

    My guess is either SHIFT or NUMBER LOCK


    Did I win?? lol

    Changed a line of the poem:
    Only in darkness my Percent of value may be

  11. vozey says:

    I’ve edited the poem. This is the final hint!

    But it comes with a consequence. There is no longer two answers to the poem. Only one!


    You may guess as much as you like!

  14. Akira Okihu says:

    Figuring this one out is hard,hard,hard! But who am I to give up?

  15. “Bright as a Caret.” Could that be a pun for “carrot” and therefore have something to do with orange?

    And what does darkness have to do with the Percent…

  16. Argh, I had the symbols/numbers in such a way that I almost spelled out “TOO HARD,” but then I was missing a letter. ๐Ÿ˜› This is tough, but so much fun! No more hints?

  17. LindaGHill says:

    Reblogged this on lindaghill and commented:
    Reward: For the one to solve this puzzle! Come on, check it out and put your smarts to good use! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. MishaBurnett says:

    I come up with $!@#%&^, which corresponds to 4123576. Is that it?

  19. willowdot21 says:

    I am a dumbo and in a rush but I shall be back!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. Akira Okihu says:

    Still nobody got the riddle,huh? I was kind of busy these days managing the start of the project,but I’ll see what I can do more.

  21. Adrian B says:

    I got this but I still don’t have a word. I drives me crazy .

  22. I still have no bloody Idea, even with the riddle upgrades, and extra hints from others. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ — I think I’ll stick to solving issues of juxtaposition, and superimposition within a frame of relative entropy and narcissistic postmodern counterintelligence.
