This thing all things devour:
Birds, beast, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
and beats high mountains down.

It's a variant of the Voltaire riddle. Number 4731 I think.......

Still good though.

How is it that SPUTNIK2 has commented on like every teaser on this website? I will paste this message every time I see their comment. Why? Because I feel like it. Okay? Okay.

I love this riddle, but I think credit should be given to the original creator: Tolkien.

It's good to come across this "timeless" riddle on any site - thanks for submitting it.

However, I think there should be a protocol for giving credit where it is due when anything is copied.
