Four Riddles


There was an ancient City, stricken down
With a strange frenzy, and for many a day

Just read this bad boy out loud and enjoy the ride.
Thud! That was the sound of my head hitting the computer's keyboard. This poem should come with a warning: Do not try to solve if you have a bad case of bronchitis which lowers IQ numbers by 50%.... I shall return when I have a brain.
Four Riddles to solve need forth folds thoughts, , .... nice
From morn to eve.... thanks for posting.....
Amusing riddle. Well contrived.
Of the four riddles only the last remains at all timeless and explicable by anyone not contemporary with the time and place in which this was written. Which makes it, all-in-all, a bit of obscure arcanum. Rather I would be pleased to repeat, why is a raven like a writing desk, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson?
Indices and surds! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
