    A DOZEN
    ADZ ONE

    IN TWELVE EGGS
    ELEVEN
    ,,,,,,,,,',,,,,,,,,,

    ( this is where wording becomes important )

    In A Dozen Eggs
    IADE , IDEA , AIDE ... letters at the beginning and end of the poem’s first and last lines

    iN A dozeN eggS
    NANS ... not a number
    alas, no link, just my broken chain of reasoning.

    RE the above, also nice.

    your wordplay reminds me of one of the only operas I've watched and actually liked (as something more than an excellent snoozing opportunity) ...
    and that was probably because I was watching it in a 1st Century Amphitheater in Verona; the nuns in the convent I was allowed to sojourn in
    let me stay out past the normal curfew, which made it all the more exciting ...

    Well, for me it only takes one, but certainly there could be many culprits ...

    eggzasperation's certainly one

    eggzasperation's certainly one
    eggzacting bosses never do wonders for zenning out
    eggony or any other emotions in the eggonizing family
    eggstacy, while quite nice, definitely throw's a wench in one's zen mode
    eggplant parm, for those allergic to nightshade, can prove the kiss of death
    and lastly, 'dis-pair,' while maybe a stretch, is somewhat egg-like in shape

    it's beginning to feel a lot like Easter,
    with every egg I find ...

    i'll stop there as this fills like a carton-half-empty type list;
    and as I certainly believe: "that which you seek is also seeking you,"
    I can see no good coming of hunting for spoiler eggs.

    PS: The below was the best rendition I could find,
    but the way I heard it, the Chicken was stretched out,
    all content-looking, enjoying a nice relaxing smoke
    while the egg sat crossed-armed, with a sullen look and furrowed brow,
    the Chicken ribbed: "Well it looks like we answered that one, now didn't we??"

    Close enough..
    think it's about 222 feet from the base of the bomb, 200 from the bottom of the glove/ rabbit
    and half a mile from the chicken under the buffalo.

    I don't really have much to add to this 200 ft talk, or eggs in fact, but in TTOTC, My War For Me, f tells of flying at 200'.... (I don't have my book with me right now, so I can't give an exact quote or page number.)

    Also he answered a question in MW: "My favorite flights were those when I headed alone, and at 200 feet, into the teeth of the Rockies, not knowing, or caring, where I would land."
    https://mysteriouswritings.com/six-q...erfect-number/

    Could 200 feet be more significant than just searchers (people) being within that distance??

    Searchers have come within about 200 feet. Some may have solved the first four clues, but I am not certain.”

    “I’m aware that people have been within 200 feet, but closer than that I don’t know.”

    “Some people have gotten within 200 feet. I know that because afterwards they told me where they were.”

    “I know that, uh, several people have been within 200 feet of the treasure, because they told me exactly where they were.”
    I don’t think those searchers within 200 feet (at the time those statements were made) were searching for gold and bronze. I think they were geologists or biologists. Maybe ones that talked to F about their work.
    But who knows? Maybe thousands of people live in the bushes surrounding the chest and just laugh at all the frustrated searchers in their naive searching boots.
