Ten Men’s Strength

Ten men’s strength,
Ten men’s length,
Ten men can’t break it,
Yet a young boy walks off with it.

What am I?

A rope.

Hickory Dickory Dock

Hickory dickory dock!
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one
and down I come.
The man will never talk.

What am I?

A guillotine.

Do Not Begrudge This

Do not begrude this,
For it is the fate of every man.
Yet it is feared,
And shunned in many lands.
Causes problems, and sometimes gaps,
Can hobble the strongest, and make memory laps.
What is this danger we all face?
For being a part – of the human race.

Growing old.

Has Wings But Cannot Fly

What has wings but can not fly.
Is enclosed, but can outside also lie.
Can open itself up or close itself away.
Is the place of kings and queens,
And doggerel of every means.
What is it upon which I stand,
Which can lead us to different lands?

A stage.

Up A Hill

Up a hill,
Down a hill,
Over them I may roam,
But after all my walking,
There’s no place like my own.

Your home.

A Laugh A Cry

A laugh, a cry,
A moan, a sigh.

What am I?

Little Cat’s Feet

It comes in on little cat’s feet,
Is neither sour, nor sweet.
Hovers in the air,
And then is not there.

Fog or mist

Sweet Tooth

Sweet tooth, ah shoot,
All gone, we all long,
For another piece.

Many and One

They are many and one,
They wave and they drum,
Used to cover a stare,
They go with you everywhere.

Your hands.

All Those Legs

Two legs sat upon three legs with one leg in his lap.
In comes four legs, grabs one leg, and runs off with him.
Up jumps two legs, grabs up three legs, throws it after four legs,
and makes him bring back one leg.

Who are we?

One leg is a leg of mutton. Two legs is a person. Three legs is a stool. Four legs is a dog.
