A BoxRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
John gave his brother James a box,
About it were many locks.
James woke and said it gave him pain,
So gave it back to John again.
The box was not with lid supplied,
Yet caused two lids to open wide.
And all these locks had never a key.
What kind of box, then, could it be?
AnswerAs curly-haired James was sleeping in bed,
His brother John gave him a blow in the head.
James opened his eyelids, and spying his brother,
Doubled his fist and gave him another.
This kind of a box then is not so rare
The lids are the eyelids, the locks are the hair.
