Tricky, clever, and insightful riddles can be fun to ponder over, and be a nice element to adventure games even. Continuing with last competitions poetry theme, I'd like to see some poems that contain some original riddles (with/without answers).
Here's an example:
"This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down." -J.R.R. Tolkien
1. Poem can be of any form and length.
2. The poem must contain a riddle.
3. Deadline June 19th.
Hopefully this isn't too difficult, and some of you will step forth and accept the challenge.
