The everyday thunder is coiled like a snail,
But just pull it out and it rumbles away.
It's so versatile! Being used as a lid,
As cookware and packing and sometimes even a hat.

What is it?

Part of the everyday object series

    $\begingroup$ Because the puzzle doesn't appear to rhyme. Maybe I missed something? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I see "-ail", "-ay", "-id", and "-at". In the middle of lines I see "-er", "-out", "-ile", and "-ing". None of those rhyme...perhaps there was something else intended in the puzzle? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Brandon_J OK, I admit that this one doesn't rhyme that much. It probably sounds rhymy-er in my non-native dialect than it actually is ;-) $\endgroup$

This sounds like

aluminum foil

The everyday thunder is coiled like a snail,

It's packaged rolled up into cylinders.

But just pull it out and it rumbles away.

It can sound thunderous when shaken.

It's so versatile! Being used as a lid,

Over jars or pots as covering.

As cookware and packing and sometimes even a hat.

As food foil trays, packing sandwiches, or a tin foil hat to keep out signals ...
