If you might have the answer then you might click on the post title and leave it below.
Not pistol, shotgun; rifle me
To find what it is you might see
What Alice found, the looking-glass
Or hear what you might throw in past
Or passed a patch not flat but rough,
Describing what is tough.
'Oh, I abhor weaponry.'
'Luckily I'm none.'
Riddle Answer Through
not pistol, shotgun; rifle me to find what it is you might see - to rifle through.
what Alice found, the looking-glass - Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There is the full title of Lewis Carrol's sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
or hear what you might throw in past - through and threw are homophones.
or passed a patch not flat but rough, describing what is tough - to go through a rough patch.
