Comparisons, Part 2 | Tools of the Trade

So, Tom used simile and metaphor in his poem. He even gave it a name!


Small Victory

Like enormous snails
a bunch of munching cows
cross the road,
chewing their cuds
as green, gloppy paste
drips from 

How long will they stare at our cars,
our rolling robots?
As they relax, knowing 
even cows win
...every now and then.


Thanks to Michael Carey's advice, Tom felt that he was even closer to a poem that captured his morning's defeat, and the cows' triumph.


Michael Carey's book, Starting from Scratch, was the source of our Tools of the Trade. Thanks to Michael for the tips!
