Extending Metaphors

Part two of metaphors included using layers of meaning in them for Dever 7th graders. Below are pieces students created about metaphors in their own life.


By Luca M.

Sal is a ball of fun,

but us sassy and makes me want to run,

Adam is a stinky gas,

always me wanna pass

Wes is a athletic pig

and always wants to dig Izzy is a very cool man

Would love to drive a van.



Diego L.

I lose a lot

Sometimes I’ll loose in fortunate

and give the sea salt.

sometimes I’ll ask my crush if they can put their Minecraft bed next to theirs and they’ll start roasting me like KFC.

All these losses keep me up at night

All the doubt without benefits

But in reality losses can be wins. Every loss comes with a lesson

And every lesson is a win

Therefore losses are wins.


Snow Cage

Noelani C.

Nature is a blizzard cruel and relentless

The confusion was a foggy mist, blocking something

The deep white smooth snow was a cold hell,

having more deeper and deeper rings as you continue.

Snowballs being through at you were personal insults,

constantly being bombarded by them considering the unlikeable hypocritical maniputliatives person you are.

You deserve this absolute downshow of hell

yet God finds mercy within you

although once you die

you’ll most certainly be sent downward

it’ll be better than what you have faced alive.
