Granting Access and Securing PrivacyRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
Defining the boundary
Between this and that place
It's pretty clear that I'm
An open-and-shut case
Sometimes a metaphor
I could be vital to
Your exit strategy
To a single axis
My movement is confined
Your privacy is that
For which I've been designed
What am I?
lines 1-2: A door divides a room from another room or hallway, etc.
lines 3-4: A play on words using one of a door's characteristics, namely that it opens and closes (or shuts).
lines 5-6: The word "door" may be used metaphorically to describe a means through which new possibilities may be realized.
lines 7-8: One may need to pass through a door in order to leave a room or building.
lines 9-10: A door usually swings on hinges.
lines 11-12: One of the functions of a door is to maintain one's privacy by having it closed.
