On Six FeetRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
The following riddle was originally printed in 1867 in "London Society".
On six feet, I am a noxious drink,
Of whose effects you shudder to think.
Change only my second foot, and then
You convert me into a horrible den
Where the culprit, who gave the noxious drink,
Awaits the fate of which you shudder to think.
HintTry reading it with "letters" instead of "feet".
"On six feet" means a six letter word. The first two lines refer to poison. The next two lines refer to prison. The last two refers to where "the culprit" who gave you the poison would go -- prison.
