So I put this into the Sandbox, it got a few upvotes, but no comments. It may be rubbish (it's the only one I've produced), but might as well give it a punt:


Round and round,
Driven by Man or horse.
An enemy of power,
Repeated throughout history.
Enjoyed with bacon and tea,
When I arrive, I change everything.

What am I?

You are

a REVOLUTION.

Round and round,

Revolution as in rotating.

Driven by Man or horse.

Revolutions of components inside an engine? Man drives vehicles which were once pulled by horses and have output measured in horsepower.

An enemy of power,

Revolution as in uprising.

Repeated throughout history.

French Revolution, Russian Revolution, etc.

Enjoyed with bacon and tea,

Bacon's revolution and the Boston Tea Party?

When I arrive, I change everything.

Revolutionary as in making big changes.

  • $\begingroup$ man, you are fast. Correct answer, Man or Horse clue is wrong. I'm cheating slightly, Man/Horse is actually two different clues on one line. The Bacon clue is correct, but not what I was thinking when I wrote it. $\endgroup$ – Obsidian Phoenix Jan 12 '17 at 11:23

  • $\begingroup$ nope. Horse answer could be explosive... $\endgroup$ – Obsidian Phoenix Jan 12 '17 at 11:26
  • $\begingroup$ Now you have it. ;) The man part was really just referencing your answer to the "enemy of power", but I like where you went with it. In terms of Bacon, I was actually thinking of this Bacon $\endgroup$ – Obsidian Phoenix Jan 12 '17 at 11:31
