I can be harmful and I can be mean. Computers sigh when I come up on screen. I can distract and annoy you all day, buzzing around in a bumbling way
You cheer and yell as we entertain, performing tunes in our domain. To slip me on you may need grease. Say my name or hold your peace.
This will help fix my lonely heart. I am meeting a man who is handsome and smart. We share some fruit. I am not alone. We eat the meat around the stone.
The guiding light for some in still fright.
With powers some can not explain.
A silver pendant on a chain.
Spun by who we eat from the palm of its hand.
For knowledge and power this pendulum demands.
Well worn with rubble and dense.
If it were to explode, we would all come to an end.
I am not art, but I am drawn. I protect you from the dawn.
I have no brain but I can speak.
Sometimes all I say is Beep.
I am made of tin but I am no man.
I will try to help you if I can.
I may break but I won’t die.
I am often heard after I.

Here is a diddy for the did,
a song for that that comes in bits.
I speak no words but you can hear
my message still loud and clear.
I am found quite often on a ship
you may think I am just a blip.
I ham it up in modern times
if you have the call I have the signs.
Many Riddles I do Hold
Hidden somewhere in my Fold
You know me for my big Feet
And in Riddles I might Cheat
I help restore a mighty King
If you know give me a Ring
What can you sit on, sleep on and brush your teeth with?
A chair, a bed and a toothbrush
