Venom SnakeDoes the respondent mean,"Like a god that's awakened"

Yes. I suppose it's "like a god who has (just) been awakened".

like a thief caught
like a kettle watched
like a guest invited
like a secret whispered
like a penny found

I can't say that this grammatical construction is particularly useful, but there you have it.

That's what it sounds like, but what is an awakened god like? The image and idea are puzzling. It sounds like he thinks that gods are normally asleep, or that everybody knows what gods are like when their sleep is interrupted. If they are anything like me, they're pretty grouchy.

Right. My problem was that I could not be sure that you were expressing what you intended to because the remark was nonsensical, that's all. I'm glad you got the answer you wanted.
