Assemble, fine puzzlers, and hear my tale
I promise, I won't be long
You've seen many puzzles, and tried to prevail
Some were right, and many were wrong.
Today I give you a new type of puzzle,
One that is sure to astound.
You'll have to be flexing every last muscle,
Searching high, low, all around.
For the solution to this vexing verse
Lies not within this page
You'll have to search outside, or worse:
Farther in... how strange?
I've laid the base of helpful clues
Although you never knew it
Just one more clue to light the fuse
So don't you look straight through it!
You know me as the meta-puzzler
At least, some of you do..
Those of you who've known me longer
Have a bit less work to do.
So go on! Start your searching
There's oh so much work to do
I'll continue creeping and lurking,
So do ask if you must have a clue.
Though your instincts tell you not to,
Listen to the words I say.
Lingering here will never help you,
Your instincts lead you astray.
Seven clues I've given you
And Seven clues you've solved
Though they might seem like nothing new
They're meant to be involved
