Riddle of Death

Question

Posted · Report post

Under dimming sun, down with cold,

Thick like a brick and millennia old.

Head of charnel where thousands have died

Skeletons, skeletons piled on high.

Among the ruins my tenants dwell.

For guests it is heaven, for victims a hell.

Stretched on my bed in colored array

Waving at travelers, grazing away.

a coral reef?

Blub, blub, blub!

You riddle masters are harpooning these as fast as I can churn them out!

Most Coral (not particularly reef) live in shallow water on the sea "bed" where there is enough sunlight to sustain its food source . . . zooplankton. Corals are formed from the build-up of calcium carbonate exoskeletons of dead coral polyps over thousands of generations. A single "head" of coral is considered a living organism, though individual polyps (tenants) live there and graze on floating zooplankton as it passes. The polyps themselves can sting with a mild poison but are gracious to symbiotic guests.

Alright. Give me five or ten to write another. Arrrrgghh!
