Long SnakeRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
A long dense snake that makes me boil,
The denser it is, the worse for all.
It has no skin, nor scales, nor coil.
But it moves along, speed down to a crawl.
It has many voices.
A rhythm, but no heart.
You'll know when you see one;
You might even take part.
Escape from its clutches
can bring you some ease.
Now you'll get where you're going
as fast as you please.
What is it?
HintThink of going to the beach on a hot summer Saturday.
Dense traffic on the highway is like a long snake, and it usually makes people who are stuck in it angry, especially if it only moves at a crawl.
The voices are the car horns. The rhythm is the revving of motors as the line of cars starts and stops.
When you finally get out of the traffic, it is a relief, and you can finally get where you are going.
