My town has thirteen buildings.
Its name has four letters.
Exactly six roads leave the town.
Only one leads to my twin town.
The other five roads are dead ends.
Four of them are three blocks long.
One of them is two blocks long.
Walk carefully in the dead end cul-de-sacs,
Since sharp objects are hidden there.
I love my town, despite the lines
Nearly everywhere you go.
Whenever something spectacular happens,
We have many meetings with our twin town.

What is the name of my town?

1 Answer 1


I think the name of the town is palm


The thirteen buildings are the 5 metacarpals and 8 carpal bones Four letters in the word palm
six roads, five being fingers, one being the arm
four of the fingers have three knuckles and the thumb has two
sharp objects are likely nails (fingernails- thanks Bailey M)
Palms have lines all across them
You clap with both hands when you enjoy something like a performance
