I'm not sure about this answer -

Tell me how would you answer the following:

 

Cornstalks twist your hair.

Mortar and pestle pound you.

Fiery dragons carry you off.

Great cartwheels surround you.

Tell me how you would answer that and then I might be more comfortable with your answer to my question I sent today.

This is a riddle that was invented in Massachusetts about the time railroads were spreading across the country. The answer is a train.

As for the key answer above - a key can open doors easily, and without keys to enter their homes, people would stand in the streets.
