# In the Middle of a Long Rectangular Slab I Lay

In the middle of a long rectangular slab I sleep and lay

I am Round, Straight, or Curved, you could say

I cannot run forward/backward, but I sometimes can spin

And when I refuse to do so, I get poked with something thin

I live on a flat desert, close to the border

I require no food, no water, no order.

What am I?

I apologize for the cringy rhymes :)

• As a couch potato, I'd almost say "me" was the answer for the first few lines... but I balked at the "require no food" part. Mar 1, 2018 at 3:59

Are you a:

Door handle

In the middle of a long rectangular slab I sleep and lay

Doors are long and rectangular

I am Round, Straight, or Curved, you could say

Door handles come in many different shapes

I cannot run forward/backward, but I sometimes can spin

Some rotate as their action for opening the door

And when I refuse to do so, I get poked with something thin

If you can't open the door, you put something thin in it (like a key, or in a hotel, a card)

I live on a flat desert, close to the border

Doors are usually flat, and the handle is usually close to the jamb (border)

I require no food, no water, no order.

They aren't living
