Breaking Tradition

Question

Some time ago

...
In every home

......
You could find me there

The host of secrets

...
I keep to myself

......
Defying not thin air

Protecting some

...
For a time

......
Sporadic perhaps my care

No longer needed

...
Out with a twist

......
But no reason to despair

For hardly no more

...
Do you see me

......
In fact I am quite rare

And now you know

...
Not how I look

......
But how I do compare

diary

or

checkbook

yeah, more rare

answering machine with cassette tape

nice read. but that particular line of that rhyme is meant to be literal.

a safe or maybe God?

hey vee's brain - think you may be picking up on a key reference. dont want to say too much for fear of throwing you off

maybe a prayer room and those old telephones does sound reasonable,

and those are not what I'm looking for either.

cork?

umm - nice fit Shakee - not it though - still think there's a definitive answer helped by the last line.

Weather vains?

The littel taismans that they used to have on door frames?

Silver mirror?

Skeleton Key?

Flypaper?

not it Wilson but do see where you're coming from. hey, can I ask if you are by chance an expat? fear I may once again not have been sensitive enough to the international crowd.

A panic room, Bomb Shelter, or Vanity (odd I know)?

none of those Framm and certainly wouldnt say odd re that last one (not a hint)

Weather vains?

The littel taismans that they used to have on door frames?

Silver mirror?

Skeleton Key?

hey Scudo - good to see you. none of those but please give it another shot.

window shades or blinds? (although I don't think either is really rare, but I'm grasping at straws at this point)

some type of insulation? Asbestos perhaps.
