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
