A Riddle

Question

i made this up, so bear with me if its too easy:

A box of boxes,

with 2 locks,

yet many keys.

You can enter, or you can escape and return,

but there's no way to get inside.

The functions don't go past 16,

do you see what I mean?

Here everything has double-meaning,

here only some are pure.

Here is where you are,

yet many more are not.

A keyboard, but there are 3 locks (scroll, caps, and number) and sometimes 4 (F-key). Also, there are only 12 F keys, so it should either say "The functions don't reach 16" or replace 16 with 12. Otherwise, good one! Now try to reword it so there are rhymes and it could become a classic some day!

well the answer is keyboard, let me explain it:

A box of boxes,

with 2 locks,

yet many keys.

* it is a box with many boxes (the keys)

* 2 locks: caps and num (actually, i have a Mac, which has 1 lock (Caps lock) but i figured most Windows users have that silly "num lock" lol

* the many keys part speaks for itself

You can enter, or you can escape and return,

but there's no way to get inside.

The functions don't go past 16,

do you see what I mean?

* the enter, escape and return buttons

* 16 F-keys

Here everything has double-meaning,

here only some are pure.

Here is where you are,

yet many more are not.

* double meaning: most keys do something else if you use them with shift, control, etc

* only some are pure: tab, escape, clear, delete, return, etc only a few keys are pure (1 meaning)

* here is where are you: if you are reading this, you are at ur computer

* yet many more are not: lots of ppl arent on their computers lol.

I'll poemize it:

A Box of boxes~

With 3 locks and many keys~

Keys that go in and out as you please~

You can escape, enter, or return with pride~

But there's no way to get inside~

For some my functions don't go past twelve,

or sixteen~

Do you see what i am, do you see what i mean?~

Everything has meaning, everything is pure~

All connected to something you can't endure~

You are using it now, look~

Gather what i said and write the answer that i took.~

I hope it becomes a classic:)
