Metaphors And Similies

Poem By Stanley Cooper

I wish I could dream up a meta-phor or five
To keep my poems more poetically alive
I will always be known as the poet who's hacking
If I continue to write poems metaphorically lacking

Similarly, since I've similies few
My poems can be tasteless as cheeseless fondue
Literature in meters, we refer to as verse
Lacking metaphors or similies, there's nothing much worse

Those figures of speech, though elusively distant
Should enter my head if my brain is persistant
I'll continue to strive to creatively write
Hoping metaphors and similies come into sight
