The answer to my riddle is the letter n ;)

Affect can mean effect and effect doesn’t mean affect
You can affect an effect but you can’t effect an affect
Or maybe you can effect an affect but that would affect my poem
Anyway, Affect is a verb and effect is a noun
Only affect can be a noun and effect can be a verb
Sometimes affect can be effect and effect can be affect
But that is only when the sentence would affect the effect
So are you confused?
How does this effect affect you?
