I steal your children, I violate your wife. Young and old, strong and weak, I don’t discriminate, for all it’s bleak. Some say, I take them too soon, I know I’m always right on time. You can’t escape the inevitable, so grab your moments before the crime.

says:

Multi coloured I be.
Choices I offer to take from me.
On electric media I must rely.
For those who wish to wander by.

With writers by the score.
And poets to implore.
I cater to these selct few.
Who visit when they want to view.

says:

Hah! At first I thought you were talking about T.V., but I was wrong… WC 🙂 Great fun.

says:

Yes Anisa I see it could have been tv from the first stanza. That’s why I added the second stanza. I thought the first too vague could have been any website or current media program so more detail int he second to make it clear cheers

Marcia Yearwood

says:

To understand, have a paradoxical mindset
I can be used daily or be deferred
I can be common or noteworthy
I’m simple but complex
I am free but I’m extremely costly
To discover the answer to this riddle, address a royal

says:

Is Craig on the right track? I have no idea… But, it is sure interesting!

says:

Uh, hum, well, I don’t think I’m supposed to tell yet, right? LOL But thanks for your comment!

Tim Hillebrant

says:

I often extend as far above the ground, as below.
I can be hollowed yet whole.
Within my arms many might sleep.
Cut me with a blade, and I will weep.
My color varies as does my size.
I can be pretty, even after I’ve died.

Emily

says:

I am beauty, and beauty is me. Sometimes I am ugly. I have been inconvenient. Sometimes I hurt, but I can set you free. I am home in an honest heart; I languish upon a liar’s lips. Founders called my kind self-evident, while philosophers argue if I exist at all.

Jay Heltzer

says:

Nothing is more irritating than that little creep pushing my buttons. He just goes on and on, over and over, push, push, push. Can’t he just make up his mind and choose something? Keep this up and I’ll just break. I don’t think I have much more energy for this.

Carol Moore

says:

I am inside and outside
I am hot and cold
I am a large square
I am black or white

says:

I can be white or black or brown, most any colour you wish. In the ’70s I was even green. I am a Mecca for your body, pulling you from sleep to attend me. I reside indoors but originally I was my own dwelling.

says:

I am long and lean some would say skinny, I am useful and can deliver 400 times my cubic volume; temporarily. I am green but can be seen in yellow red and black. Mostly I reside outside of the main dwelling some people put me in my own designated spot.
