Posted · Report post

One Hundred Rights

The following is all but two or three,

though I am ordered often just to be.

I share an attribute with our green earth

and with the U.S. dime in terms of worth.

So many men have claimed to marry me

despite my rage and some say lunacy.

I might be found out twice inside a cup,

but only if you turn me facing up.

I'm found inside all ice but not the air.

For look among the lookers and I'm there.

What am I?

One Hundred Rights <100 is C in roman numerals; copyrights are symbolized by a circled C>

The following is all but two or three, <all of the alphabet (but three letters: abc) follows C>

though I am ordered often just to be. <C is ordered next to B>

I share an attribute with our green earth <C and Earth are third in order (from the Sun)>

and with the U.S. dime in terms of worth. <C and dime are third in order (from least to greatest dollar value)>

So many men have claimed to marry me <Sailors are married to the Sea>

despite my rage and some say lunacy. <the Sea responds to the moon (luna)>

I might be found out twice inside a cup,

but only if you turn me facing up. <C is in cup, as well as U (a c turned facing up)>

I'm found inside all ice but not the air. <C is in iCe but not air>

For look among the lookers and I'm there. <lookers See>

Thanks!
