The Enemy WithinRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I know I'm not welcome
But I keep coming back
Be under your attack
At a time you will choose
I will be swept away
I will return some day
Keep in mind through it all
Part of me comes from you
So you'll win the battle
But the war starts anew
What am I?
HintThe sight of me is not pleasing
I may even cause one's (a word that rhymes with "pleasing")
The line "part of me comes from you" is a reference to the fact that household dust originates partly from human skin cells and human hair.
For the hint, the missing rhyming word is "sneezing". This line is a reference to the fact that dust may worsen hay fever.
The title is a reference to dust as being "the enemy within" your own home.
