    No, but you're the closest anybody has gotten.

    I thought of tapeworm too, but that bookcase and snake line is messing with me.

    care to break down the riddle? I can see most of how it fits, but would be interested in your thought process in making it up.

    I thought it was pretty good actually, Thanks for the breakdown.

    Lines 4 and 5 were the ones I was unsure of, I got the snake bit (tapeworm) but hadn't thought about funghi relation to the bookshelf. The sight and mind links weren't quite so obvious!

    I thought the "sight an mind" clues were the best.

    Good riddle, sir.
