You insist I should take one
Ten I shall take as I won.
Tendencies are like a corpse
Fire spreads over entire course.
Fighting as they found a hole
Bamboos grow on land as whole.
Bamboozling, I take villages
Golden signs lie over ages.
Golfers shall smell a fragrance
Horses show what they will glance.
Horizons pointed by a deer
Black as Guinness, oh my dear.
Blocked by traps for tiny mice
Arranged evenly like dice.
Arrogant as they show teeth
______s those I hid beneath...
What's the hidden word? It has 6 letters.
My first enigmatic puzzle, enjoy!
Each line holds exactly one clue. Except the last line.
Something accumulates one by one, line by line.
If this poem had a 17th line, its last word would be "flute."
Very Decisive Hint:
You insist to mark a dot
Knives are to hit the spot.
Knights holding up their shields
Water floods over their yields.
What treat they're having is sweet
Rice is the meal they will eat.
Right then, the side-dish is peas
Doors open for their good peace.
Dominating all the wind
Ghosts just laugh at what they wind.
Gospels are for ripe barleys
Yellow and fresh on trolleys.
Yelling at that one cauldron
Noses they pick as they drone...
Very² Decisive hint:
The word is an animal, a mythical one.
