The Unconventional Path

The more you take, the more you leave behind. What am I?

Answer at the end of the post

Found in deep thought
A truth you tease out
Now left with an answer
Shrouded in doubt

Monostich: puzzling existence

I am in parts, a puzzle

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

“This thing all things devours;
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers,
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
and beats mountain down.”

Answer at the end of the post
Why is a raven
like a writing desk?
I don't know...
Something to do with Poe?

A brain teaser is a form of puzzle that requires thought to solve. It often requires thinking in unconventional ways with given constraints in mind; sometimes involving lateral thinking.

The Riddle of Polygamy & Cats

As I was going to St Ives
I met a man with seven wives
A talented man I must say
For I struggle with only one
But add three hundred and forty three cats
And tell me where there’s time for fun?

  1. I enjoyed finding some answers at the end of the post. My answers now stand corrected. My daughter and her husband provide a home for three rescue cats. Once in a great while, their home isn’t such a fun place.

    1. That was the thought behind the first rhyme of the post. Even when you think you know the answer there is always a slither of doubt.
      I can imagine. 3 cats would be a handful. But 300 plus, that’s a whole lotta handfuls.

  3. Hey Mouse Man ! You are gaining my respect very quickly. FYI since you “almost” inquired but your “being polite” inhibited you….. Yes! I am an OLD SHOE and Born in 1954. A good year for OLD FOOLS !

    Why is it when I journey do I leave 3 tracks ? Because I have but two SOLES and only one SOUL.

    Your new friend,
