Roses are red
Violets are blue
Poems are hard
Beer
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

OK, here's a moderately tricky one from me:

There’s two cat’s feet that end their tread,
And if things start again, I’m dead
Two columns tell my life and death,
I lived so you could catch your breath.
But things must end, then start, because,
If I don’t die, I never was –
I speak no word, take up no room,
What name should stand upon my tomb?
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

Very good! Most people I showed that one to were stumped. :)

I actually saw this on the billboard for a pub.

My turn;

What do I have in my pocket?
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

At least one nitrogen atom. Statistically pretty much a certainty.

Wrong. Now we gets to eat it whole.

Rats is correct though.

Bump.

I don't want to speculate on the contents of CG's pockets, but it appears to have been answered correctly, and so I think Jubal gets to pose a new riddle.

Sorry, I've been very slow on this...

Murad's headgear, necks of swans,
Bottles from around the world,
Make them decorations, songs,
Feast when summer's leaves are furled,
Say it slow, a deity,
Is what these are, then, don't you see?
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

Not to worry: you've had plenty of other things to do.

I'm looking forward to the answer to this one, since there's a stack of allusions, most of which I can't work out yet. About all I've come up with is...
