I Won't Let You DownRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I've many holes but I will never leak
Not comfortable? Just give me a tweak
Though often together most of the day
Come bedtime we'll go our separate ways
Life without me might be kind of a drag
'Cause when I'm not around things tend to sag
Doing my job, your reliable mate
This is a "hold-up" you'll appreciate
What am I?
The holes are those in the belt for adjusting the circumference around one's waist according to one's comfort.
Normally, one wouldn't wear their trousers to bed and therefore also not their belt.
One's trousers may droop and potentially drag on the floor/ground without a belt.
The belt is a reliable "companion" which holds up one's trousers.
The title alludes to the function of a belt which is to hold up (or not let down) one's trousers.
