I have also heard this one a different way:

What is greater than God,

More evil than the Devil,

The poor have it,

The rich don't want it,

And if you eat it you will die.

How do you eat nothing? Does it taste like "nothing else" ?

What if you don't eat nothing??? Are you eating something - which you would be if math has anything to do with it!

maybe something else comes close to this - Everything!!!!

Since when do poor people have nothing? Poor people can have clothing, food, even land/homes.

I agree. I've never liked this riddle, or any variant, because of the absolute meaning implied in the word 'nothing'.

A poor man has something. (ex. clothes, eyes, hair, a shopping cart full of cans, etc...)

A rich man needs something. (air, food, poor people to step on, etc...)

Perhaps you can be poor at a different level?

or in a different way?

In this sense, I think poor is taken not really to literally. It means (in this situation) "a person who has nothing" It's possesive.

I'v heard this before, but with different wording:

what is mightier than god

and more evil than the devil's fire

what the poor have

the rich require

what savers spend

and spendthrifts save

and all men carry to their grave
