Decode the very easy riddle and solve it to get the answer, which will explain the title. You have to post the decoded message in your answer and explain the solution.
- I said the riddle was easy, not the decoding.
- You will know when you have found the answer, there is no guesswork involved.
- The punctuation was added after encoding
- The whitespace is important, be careful to keep it intact
I really want to see how easy it is to crack the code, so I am reluctant to give hints, but here are some to get you going:
The title and tag together give a clue as to the methods you must use to decode it
The method you must use follows simple rules
Edit: I have decided to give a full explanation; first have a look at ImongMama's correct answer.
The answer is:
Caesar's sandwich, formed by the first letter of each line
Which explains the title:
Julius Caesar is the unfortunate Roman; the other part refers to the Earl of Sandwich. The title is also a clue to the decryption method, because the secret message is a Caesar ciphered sandwich code (where every second letter is read, returning to the beginning of a line from the end)
And the poem:
All is now here,
You have broken the code
Each little letter,
Should now appear,
You should be looking for stand-alone letters to make up the answer.
Are you ready?
Race to the end,
'ides of march coming,
Julius Caesar was killed during the Ides of March
Seeing your friend?
A clue that a person fits the clues in this half of the poem.
Spread it on thickly,
Add a nice slice,
Now bite it quickly,
Making and eating a sandwich
Dry desert dunes, Which gliding on broom
Dunes are sand, and a homonym of witch —> sandwich
Inside the lunch room,
Common item for lunch
Chutney goes well,
Chutney goes well with many sandwiches; also the Earl of Sandwich and the Earl of Chutney
Have you found it?
