Sometimes I wonder how it will end

Complete the verse with a body part,

Eco nut our da,
We fight on ye dead,
Entry _____

and the sequence with a letter,

d, e, r, y, k, t, h, r, e, y, _

• Are the two parts related? Or are we supposed to figure that out for ourselves? Feb 2 '18 at 11:36
• Yep - the two parts are related.

The answer to the first part is

ILEUM - part of the word millennium

and the second part is

m. The last letter of the word millennium

because the clues represent

time, in increasing length

I figured this out just by

putting the letters next to the words and after I noticed day and week, the rest fell into place
eco - d second
nut - e minute
our - r hour
da - y day
we - k week
fight - t fortnight
on - h month
ye - r year
dead - e decade
entry - y century

I couldn't figure out

why the other letters are missing, but it turns out this wasn't part of the puzzle.

• You've really got it (the missing letters aren't part of the answer)! Maybe could find a gutsy word for the first part (and the title is an overall hint).

• Rot13 VYRHZ. I'd feel cheap to post a separate answer after your work. Feb 2 '18 at 12:06
• Also M Oehm is right with his hip alternative answer - also a five letter, three syllable body, part :D
