Short Metaphorical Poem #1
brother is like a spider monkey.
He jumps around the house like a spider monkey jumps around his cage.
My brother doesn’t say, “Ooh, ooh, ooh.”
Instead he yells, “Get out of my way or I’ll knock you down.”
Short Metaphorical Poem #2
My cousin is like a highway cop.
When we’re driving, she rolls down the window and yells, “Pull the vehicle
over, I’m giving you a ticket,” to any car we drive by.
Metaphorical Poem #3
My brother is like a Saint Bernard.
He eats like a slob and leaves scraps of food and splashes of pop all over the
Short Metaphorical Poem #4
My dog is like a cheetah.

without a helicopter and a tranquilizer gun.
