#ROGUERIDDLE 1090 (3rd update & reveal) #RogueRiddle

My quest for more guesses has willed it
Three players eventually killed it
But none can now claim
I must be to blame
Maybe next week they’ll come if I build it. 

[Kudos to Chris G. Bill C. & Erika E. for at least playing along]

My number of players, now two!
But still I’ll not offer a clue
If someone wants to claim
Please send me your name
Otherwise it will be you know who! 

And if you are baffled a bit
About my refusal to quit
I’ll state here and now
I still don’t know how
Though it seems only I …give a hoot

Well, there was more response to my hashtag fumble than there was to the actual riddle. I have so far collected guesses from only one player, who immediately knocked the whole thing out, but of course he’s not playing to claim. So here I sit all broken hearted.

Since I am presuming there’s no real need here for a set of clues, I will instead summarize the situation in limerick form in hopes of inspiring a few potential players to step up and become submissive. If everyone fails to respond, I’ll likely be hosting again next tweak. You know what that means don’t you? Right, more limericks! 

I love to write SELDDIR in verse
As puns go, I’ve likely done worse
Salty Navy men know
That sub missions this low
Are really sub par for the curse

Below you will find a series of 5 punny limericks. Each of the first 4 verses contains a single BLANK for you to fill with a single word. (Some are puns and some are not) Collect the proper 4 words from these verses and rearrange to turn them into a 4 word phrase that phonetically approximates a line that will logically complete the missing words in verse 5. 

Even though it may appear there’s a common theme to some of these limericks, I assure you that this is totally coincidental and really should not be interpreted as either a clue or a red herring. 

First player to submit the correctly completed verses wins the honor of hosting next week’s game. No deadline, but this sort of riddle generally falls pretty fast, so if you have any delusions about grabbing this brass ring, you should respond soon.

Thought my quest for old gold was a shoe in
But this Yucatán dig’s my undoin’ 
Now I’m in big trouble
Got buried in rubble
BLANK whole life, right now, lies in ruin (#### MAYA)

Embezzling’s a bad habit which is
A poor way to build up your riches
So don’t dip in the BLANK (#### TILL)
You’ll find gains, gotten ill
Is a rash move that won’t cure your itches

A man of my elk, oft will find
Pursuit of big bucks on his mind
Doe won’t make me richer
But you get the picture
Take BLANK or you may fall be-hind (#### HART)

Disney’s film, a strange story, does tell
About fair young maiden named Belle
Not perverse, in the least
To fall for a BLANK (#### BEAST) 
But this sort of tail seldom ends well 


A deer buck, I’ve trained, (don’t ask how)
To break the soil, hitched to my plow
He’s doing his part
(Sounds like I’m in love with him now!)
