I wanted to write a poem
but I didn't know what to say.
So I've sat here for an hour
just staring at the rain.
I like the use of metaphor
but can't always think of one.
The puddles are small seas
that brave ants swim across.
Similes are similar
but with as or like.
Slugs and snails love to splash
like overweight Dad-dancers.
Personification is where things become human
but it's difficult to pull off.
The cats beg to come inside-
lazy old blokes that hate getting soaked.
I tried to write a poem
but couldn't think of what to say.
So instead I'm going to sit here
just staring at the rain all day.
By the way,
modern poems don't need to rhyme
or even have a regular metre (time.)
