! Metaphor Poem by Michael Shepherd

! Metaphor

Rating: 2.7

A pretty girl
is like a simile
and vice-a-versa
so I'd say
for like the sunlight it
delights our so prosaic day

and life is better for
a metaphor
when apposite
to what you write

the first I used
that made some sense
came out of childish

before I read
the word in prose
I thought that what
just goes and goes

was 'dire rear' -
not too bad
as an idea
for a nappy-happy lad?

oh yes, for our US readers - 'for a pampered lad'... (did you know it is the most common international word?)

I think I like this poem, Michael. I definitely like the first part. Then I got a little lost, but I liked the imagery and flow anyway.

Is it a poem? Seems like a.collection of phrases picked from the air and typed into collective column.
