I'll bump this in case there is interest. (& sincere apologies, I didn't realize I had an open riddle remaining.) Not one of my better offerings, so also a bit of a re-write:

 

  • I'm neither ugly nor watched by children

  • But fall afoul of my salty attitude and enjoy my crusty skin

  • Though I could sound a bit crazy, I'm not a fraud

  • Especially while moving

  • Get off my lawn, it's dinnertime

 

 

Hope to check in on the Den now and again. :)

Oh my goodness!! Hello! I love the revival of a 2013 riddle, bring it on! :)

I'm going to post the two poems back to back just for comparisons sake: 

I'm neither ugly nor watched by fools
But my salty attitude could get under your skin
& I could sound a bit crazy
Especially while moving
Get off my lawn

  • I'm neither ugly nor watched by children

  • But fall afoul of my salty attitude and enjoy my crusty skin

  • Though I could sound a bit crazy, I'm not a fraud

  • Especially while moving

  • Get off my lawn, it's dinnertime

Initial thoughts:

Spoiler

While my thoughts initially jumped to something like a sailor or a witch, I feel like it might actually be food/diet related due to "not watched by children/fools" and "salty/crusty" and "dinnertime." "sound a bit crazy" could be a reference to bananas, but the rest of the rhyme doesn't fit, and "while moving" doesn't really apply here...

I'm going to guess a crab

> salty attitude & crusty skin --> crustacean

> could sound a bit crazy / get off my lawn --> "crabby"?

Hiya peace! Good to "see" you still around. :) Hope all is well!

You're onto the right general idea after your initial thoughts, but this guess is boiled. (& hopefully picked & dipped in butter.)
