Question

Posted · Report post

Swimming in the darkest oceans

Driven nowhere by my own fins

   Yet them I must depend on to survive

Accompanied by pilots true

Who swim nearby to keep me groomed

   Ensuring that I can perform and thrive

Ears and mouth bend towards the ground

Eyes transfixed where we'll be found

   When one day we complete our greatest drive

Oh mother, father, listen to my words

I bear a tale of times before your births

Seems like that would be much more of a stretch to fit the riddle than what I've got in mind.

In other words, no.

I love the riddle - great job, whether I'm right or not :-)

Bingo!

Great job; I had the feeling this would've been one of the tougher ones.

Is this a question or a statement?

Subs have no fins

Our greatest drive - The final frontier?

Darkest oceans - Sounds like space. :)

Fins - solar panels.

Pilots - astronauts, swim (float)

Tale of times before your births - big bang :D

You sound like a space telescope.

Are you looking for a specific one?

EDIT: Oh, just saw that it was answered. :blush:
