Obscured Path to Clarity

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

What is the common thread in the following nonsensical poem?


I'm willing to bet that you will know
How to express you approve the show

Brown's a decent fellow, but who knows
Why you won't see a change in his clothes?

Reverberations of days of yore
Century-old moves on the dance floor

The fewer the better when you play
A roof over your head while away

Populous eastern subcontinent
Shakespearean tragic incident

Dost thou know a prefix metrical
Been used for power electrical?

At the origin of a broadcast
As good as the rest, though second last

I'd like to thank the Academy
And one who's always been there for me

Represented by lilies of four
Without her, he chose to live no more

North American mountain expanse
It is said, "it takes two" for this dance

Variations I can't tolerate
To this person a win may elate

Potent product of fermentation
Instrument in examination

I doodle as time goes idly by
From their language, "people of the sky"

What are we?




What Next?

This is one of the best, possible THE best, of the actual poetic riddles I've ever seen. Everything is tied together very well, and the poetry is valid as well. I didn't get it, but the answer actually crossed my mind when I got to "Charlie." Somehow I didn't realize that it was correct.

I'm with eighsse. I rated this one in review and I think it's absolutely brilliant. As one who is ex-military myself I probably should've gotten the answer, but it escaped me. Very well written.
