Four squares ACROSS:
Simple Answer or Torturous Enigma?
Puzzles can be candy for the brain
or a thorn.
This puzzle shall entertain me!
Writing black lines on white paper;
black and white answers.
Eraser: ally of guessers everywhere.
Five squares DOWN:
Only the mentally strong will
Venture their time,
Energy, their intellectual
Resources to sate
These letter-starved squares. Obviously!
Using unyielding fortitude
I shall use a pen - not pencil -
and confidently vanquish my grid-like enemy.
The overt words at first of course!
And when the clue
for an eleven-letter word for freedom arises,
Mr. Thesaurus here at my side
gives me deliverance.
