Meta Metaphors, Smiling Similes by Garrett Forbes

Meta Metaphors, Smiling Similes
by Garrett Forbes

What is a metaphor for metaphor
Could it make sense to say a simile
They both compare so it shows what they’re for
Maybe I could use some hyperbole

Metaphors are doves flying through the air
Similes are like rocks, it is so hard
Finding a single word for to compare
making me so jarred

Perhaps this sonnet is far too meta
Metaphors need null but definition
Some other words can be compared bett’a
With metaphors, similes can’t function

Meta metaphors for four meta men
Smiling similes do what they can
