Well, I didn't get it. Nice teaser nonetheless. Thanks for posting.

Yes, I agree the rhyme and rhythm flow exceptionally well. For me, however, there were too many clues that leave too many options! e.g. for letters 3 and 4 there are no letters in common. It makes it difficult; that's OK, but also removes some of the fun associated with this genre. Personal thoughts, not criticism!

@dalfamnest: I've never actually had the patience to solve this myself, nor any other riddle of this type. Thanks for pointing that out!
