I am back with a second riddle, hope you enjoy this and I expect some to answer it correctly within a matter of time.

Here I will live and here I will stay,
as I will guard this all today.
This is my property is what you may not believe,
as some would take me for a meme.
But alas a day came,
when three came tip tapping on my lane.
I let two pass as they were to young,
but the real target was the old one.
I met my match as though they would say,
as I am 6 feet under all today.

You are

The troll under the bridge in the Billy Goats Gruff

Here I will live and here I will stay
as I will guard this all today.

He guards the bridge

This is my property is what you may not believe
as some would take me for a meme

You wouldn't expect the bridge to be guarded by a troll, and a 'troll' is a joke, like a meme

But alas a day came
when three came tip tapping on my lane

The goats

I let 2 pass as they were to young
but the real target was the old one

He let two past as they promised the next would be bigger

I met my match as though they would say
as I am 6 feet under all today

The big goat hit him really hard and he fell in the river (hopefully dead)

  • $\begingroup$ @SmailBarkouch, I quite enjoyed, I think you need to make the hints a bit more cryptic though $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Oct 10 '16 at 18:15
  • $\begingroup$ I'll try to make it more cryptic next time as my riddle gave to much info like you said.Thanks for the advise! $\endgroup$ – Jansen Norm Oct 10 '16 at 18:17
