    Default a jrrag puzzle

    Sea Saw
    ...

    "A mystery duel was what the Aegean's two-sail race began. Hymns say it is a tale of time. My axe is skilled. Famosa shant claim them."

    Now I'm lost. A beige gem?

    "Shine to it? If so," said he, "six to one exacts a sky of sworn sub rosa's fifty-six. Think of a funnel full of text: Tall elves we both impugn."

    Are we allowed to share observations or shall we just work until we have an answer?

    Up to you.  It's just for fun.  I wish I could offer a 60K piece of carbon for the solution, but alas, I have not sold any multimillion dollar companies yet.

    Just have fun with it, whether that be in community or not.  

    I'll be psyched to see what people think about it no matter what.

    Well, if you remove all of the punctuation, the letters form a perfect square, 15x15.

    The title should elicit thoughts of how to start. Destructo's comment is interesting.

    I don't know if this helps anyone or not. It doesn't have an immediate answer to it, but it shows looks very Matrix-y in the blue/grey style. I just took the text of the puzzle and split it up 15 letters 15 lines.

    Code:
    A	M	Y	S	T	E	R	Y	D	U	E	L	W	A	S
    W	H	A	T	T	H	E	A	E	G	E	A	N	S	T
    W	O	S	A	I	L	R	A	C	E	B	E	G	A	N
    H	Y	M	N	S	S	A	Y	I	T	I	S	A	T	A
    L	E	O	F	T	I	M	E	M	Y	A	X	E	I	S
    S	K	I	L	L	E	D	F	A	M	O	S	A	S	H
    A	N	T	C	L	A	I	M	T	H	E	M	N	O	W
    I	M	L	O	S	T	A	B	E	I	G	E	G	E	M
    S	H	I	N	E	T	O	I	T	I	F	S	O	S	A
    I	D	H	E	S	I	X	T	O	O	N	E	E	X	A
    C	T	S	A	S	K	Y	O	F	S	W	O	R	N	S
    U	B	R	O	S	A	S	F	I	F	T	Y	S	I	X
    T	H	I	N	K	O	F	A	F	U	N	N	E	L	F
    U	L	L	O	F	T	E	X	T	T	A	L	L	E	L
    V	E	S	W	E	B	O	T	H	I	M	P	U	G	N
