Question

A full moon rests now o’head,

Waves within my hand,

Eighteen score, no less, no more,

The cold and careless band.

Plastic, tree, or cloth ‘tis me,

I care not which it be;

So long as rain from earth abstain,

My mission thus complete.

George Bush and his weather machine causing a drought at midnight...you know...because if he would kill thousands of Americans for a pretext to go to war so he could get rich then why not cause a famine or some other disaster

:wacko: (hmmm tongue-in-cheek failure. I gotta improve my skills)

something operating on a 360 nm bandwidth? Project Ozma, or a radio-telescope? Since umbrella, tent, and shelter are taken.

Nothing yet. Sorry this ain't the best riddle in the world. I just banged it out in a minute for something to do. I noticed a slight error that might lead people astray so here's a rewrite with minor alteration.

A full moon sits now o’head,

Waves and rocks at hand,

Eighteen score, no less, no more,

The cold and careless band.

Plastic, tree, and cloth ‘tis me,

I carry what you covet;

So long as rain from deck abstain,

My purpose lies above it.

Hey Shakee - have been giving this one much thought for some time and need to get this guess out so I can move on

toilet or maybe just toilet seat?

A full moon rests now o’head, - one way to look at it

Waves within my hand, - close to water

Eighteen score, no less, no more, - round and

The cold and careless band. - cold (less than half the time for men) and careless (inconsiderately the other more than half maybe)

Plastic, tree, or cloth ‘tis me, - plastic, mine is; wood, seen that; cloth? doubtful but have seen some padded vinyl

I care not which it be;

So long as rain from earth abstain, - a sanitary/health issue

My mission thus complete. - check

Will keep at it.
