This riddle describes a verb, but be careful because the answer isn't what you first think it is:

Acting on both hay and sack
They say it's a wonder if I do only one
Both brick wall and skids I will attack
The answer is when I fail to get done



Answer

Miss

Hit the hay, hit the sack
One hit wonder
Hit a brick wall, hit the skids
Failing to hit is MISS

Hide




What Next?
