I’m a question you might ask

I’m a broken wish that’s small

I’m mail that gets sent last

I add a southern feel to all

I’m a fork that you'll divine

but use only sometimes

What am I?

Y

I’m a question you might ask

Why?

I’m a broken wish that’s small

A wishbone is small, Y-shaped, and broken to make a wish

I’m mail that gets sent last

Mail->Male-> XY chromosomes. Y is last in "XY"

I add a southern feel to all

y+all = y'all

I’m a fork that you'll divine

A divining rod is Y-shaped

but use only sometimes

Y is sometimes a vowel

  • $\begingroup$ It might be letter, but it's not quite last then. $\endgroup$ – Robert C Mar 27 '18 at 16:32
  • $\begingroup$ mail ~ male = XY, Y being last chromosome? $\endgroup$ – Jordan.J.D Mar 27 '18 at 17:05

Continuing on from Robert C's's answer, I would choose to finish this.

Y

I’m a question you might ask

Why?

I’m a broken wish that’s small

A wishbone is small, Y-shaped, and broken to make a wish

I’m mail that gets sent last

The word mail sounds like male, which's alleles are XY. The last letter of this is a Y

I add a southern feel to all

y+all = y'all

I’m a fork that you'll divine

A diving rod is Y-shaped

but use only sometimes

Y is sometimes a vowel
