Homework Help: Poetry (metaphors)

Posted by Larry on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 3:00pm.

What's the metaphor?

The Toaster

A silver-scaled dragon with jaws flaming red
sits at my elbow and toasts my bread.
I hand him fat slices, and then, one by one,
He hands them back when he sees they are done.

1. What two things are beng compared in this poem?

Answer: A dragon and a toaster.

2. What do the two things have in common?

Answer: they both have the ability to toast bread.

Those are the questions I have to answer using the poem above.
Can someone please check #2.
I need to know is that the only thing it has in common or are there others that I've missed.

Thank you.
