I have this ... work associate ... with whom I've done several jobs that are, as some would say, of questionable legality (no judging please). We're pretty successful together, but he likes to skip town after jobs, leaving nothing but an enigmatic email. I've been chasing him around the world like some kind of twisted Carmen Sandiego for job after job. I don't know why I continue to work with this guy, but alas ...
He sends the emails when he gets to a new city. I've been pretty good at tracking him through said emails until now. I'm stuck on this one, so I've come here in search of help! I need to know where he's gone this time. Please don't guess incorrectly because every guess is a plane ticket and precious hours of my time. Thanks, all!
I'm off again! Meet me for the next job in 2 days, assuming you can make any sense of this cipher. I hope it's not impossible for you to put together!
Smell ya later!
my patronage, anyone's hearse
conceals quickly raging roars
concerning suffering boars
Have at it, puzzlers! I need this ASAP! I'll be readying my go bag for when you get his location! Today of all days ...
He sent along the following hint:
Yo! I haven't heard from you, and I want your help for this job. Just take what you know about ciphers and upend it. See you tomorrow!
