Two BrothersRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I lie down there as you watch me
stick a sword into my head.
You never notice, never see
the description I have said.
My brother who is a twin,
as some people may say,
has an axe behind him
and tries to run away.
We both lie still, the same
beside a pool of red.
We may participate in your game
or amaze people instead.
Who are we?
HintI have a face, I have a back,
However I'm different from you.
My friends are only red and black,
Part of 52.
AnswerThe Red Kings
The King of Hearts has a sword sticking into his head.
The King of Diamonds has an axe behind his head.
Both lie still because they're cards...
The pools of red refer to the large pips beside the kings.
Kings are cards that can be used to play games or do card tricks.
Cards have faces and backs.
Pips on cards come in two colours red & black.
52 cards in a deck.
