I pass right through you,
Make no mistake.
My identity, do
These questions make:

Perfect? You just hurt my head
Discomfited? I made the bed
Wanted? Little trouble overflows
Buried? Deliver the final blows

Who am I?

You are

A nail. It passes right through whatever it is hammered into.

Perfect?

Hit the nail on the head

Discomfited?

A bed of nails is less than ideal

Wanted?

This is the "For want of a nail" proverb about problems escalating - neat clue, answer courtesy of Stiv

Buried?

The final nail in the coffin

  • $\begingroup$ Looks good to me :) I think your missing one is the phrase about: rot13(Sbe jnag bs n anvy gur fubr jnf ybfg; sbe jnag bs n fubr gur ubefr jnf ybfg; naq sbe jnag bs n ubefr gur zna jnf ybfg) +1 $\endgroup$ – Stiv Jan 28 at 20:07
  • $\begingroup$ @Stiv Correct; they're all rot13(vqvbzf). The answer needs a bit of improvement for 3/4 but otherwise it's totally correct. $\endgroup$ – Avi Jan 28 at 20:08
