A time when they are green, a time when they're brown, but both of these times, cause me to frown. But just in between, for a very short while, They're perfect and yellow and cause me to smile!
Glittering points that downward thrust,
Sparkling spears that never rust.
What is it that races your mind?
Sets your heart on fire,
And blows off time?
Used to be a drink,
But isn't anymore.
And can be bought down the street;
In the five and ten cent store?
Little Nancy Etticote,
In a white petticoat,
With a red nose;
The longer she stands
The shorter she grows.
A goddess wears a golden gown,
Upon us smiles sweetly down,
Until I blush for all to see,
When twilight comes, she hides from me.
five is greater than zero,
zero is greater than two,
two is greater than five,
how can this be true?
hint: 3 words
stuff me, lick me, vandalize me, give me away.
Once I have served my purpose, your secrets will soon be revealed.
I stand when I rest but that's only fair,
I do my best work with my legs in the air.
Silently I drink and dive in fluids dark as night.
I beat the mighty warrior but never in fight.
The black blood in my veins your thirst for knowledge slakes.
My spittle is more venomous than that of poison snakes.
The one who makes it, doesn't want it.
The one who takes it, doesn't know it
The one who knows it, won't take it.
What is it?
Hint: It's not a coffin
Touching one, yet holding two,
it is a one link chain
binding those who keep words true,
'til death rent it in twain.
A last vestige of man
that refuses to die.
In mourning I am tossed
at your feet to lie.
