This Week's Riddle
The day he leaves his boxy home, is the day that he shall die
A single breath is all he takes, yet at his passing none will cry.
He is certainly no writer; no chapters in his book
But foundering in darkness, he'll help you take a look
He'll help you on your birthday; though his present you'll destroy
And your parents might have said, don't treat him as a toy.
Just one task is asked of him, and yet he goes on strike?
Safety first we all demand, no matter what he'd like.
(answer is one word)
