So my first offering was a tad too easy,
at least no one faulted my rhyming as cheesy.
I guess I need to be more sly,
so here is another try:


I move, I step,
as silent as snow.
I grow, I flick,
from lit candle wick.
I leap, I bound,
yet don't leave the ground.
I've arms, I've hair,
less substantial than air.
I pass, I go,
with someone I know.
I dash, I tumble,
but it's never my fumble.

You're answer shows you are bright,
but alas, in the end, it isn't right!

This form I'm aware is friend nor foe
When I'm alone in the night he never shows
But when I'm alone and it's bright he never goes!

As much as I try to talk to and get to know
I never get closer to my close companion SHADOW.

You sir may stand tall and erect,
for you are quite correct.

Now since I must arise at three,
it is off to bed for me!

Hopefully some bright and insightful fan
will put forth a riddle to befuddle Dan!

Here I sit and here I play
Lounging around all goddam day.
If I had thumbs I'd pay some bills
by working and earning with my skills.
Craftful and clever and clearly bright
I'll track you and stalk you through the night.
But thumbless I am so here I stay
Lounging around all goddam day.
Feed me and clean me and let me lay
Lounging around all goddam day.

What am I?

Judging by the three in my home,
I'd guess not a gnome,
Nor a bat,
But most certainly a cat!

I've used this one in my class:

How many people must be gathered together in a room, before you can be certain that there is a greater than 50/50 chance that at least two of them have the same birthday?
