Solve this riddle.: 'The Terrorizer
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Louis Gander
Other Poems by Louis Gander


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 the strongest gun,
but started many wars.
Oh, but its so lazy too,
escaping many chores.

It started every argument.
Rare silence you 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!
