Rhyming Riddle

The Society of Classical Poets held a Rhyming Riddle Contest recently.My poem  titled “One or two” was featured under  the ‘honourable mentions’ column.

If you want to check the original page it is here

I am giving below the poem itself

 

One or two

 

My name means two things that you get to see

You consume one, the other consumes you,

As far apart as the sky from the sea,

A part of your daily life are these two

 

One causes addiction, another cures,

Their forms and functions are different too,

One gives you protection from illness sure,

Other-knowledge and entertainment too.

 

From the attacks of illness one screens you

One a screen that takes you to another world

One is given by doctors to help you,

One is bought in vanity truth be told.

 

You can’t live without one is what you think

And the other keeps your health in the pink
