The Terrorizer
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Louis Gander
Other Poems by Louis Gander


The Terrorizer (A RIDDLE - Read slowly and see how soon you can figure it out)
 

It's smaller than a meteor and hasn't that much girth -
yet stronger than the largest bomb and could destroy the Earth.

It can be smooth as velvet and sometimes it can run -
or cooler than a summer breeze or hotter than the sun.

It's smaller than an average gun but started many wars.
Oh, but its so lazy too, escaping many chores.

It started every argument that those around can hear.
It's something most will never lose and always very near.

Receiving orders from the brain, air flowing from the lung -
but if you don't quite get it yet, just bite your wicked tongue!
