Life is full of me! (Posted on 2006-09-07) Difficulty: 3 of 5
With potent, flowery words speak I,
Of something common, vulgar, dry;
I weave webs of pedantic prose,
In effort to befuddle those,
Who think I wile time away,
In lofty things, above all day
The common kind that linger where
Monadic beings live and fare;
Practical I may not be,
But life, it seems, is full of me!

Solution Riddle resolution? | Comment 2 of 18 |

Since the person (or supposedly anarticulate object) would speak  "Of something common, vulgar, dry "  with a view to befuddling the targeted audience; the solutions might be a conundrum, a puzzle or a riddle.

However, upon closer examination, the "webs of pedantic prose" restriction takes away the "puzzle"  and "conundrum" as possible answers, leaving "riddle" ( or a "riddler") as the only possible solution.

A look at the 8th and the 10th line reinforces the view that only "riddle" or "riddler" satisfies all the conditions of the problem.
