Can anyone find any poetic devices in this poem?
(metaphors, similes, personification, etc)
AMBITION BY DES WALSH
Once upon a time
A poor man
Sat all day
Hoping for food
Outside a kitchen door
At night he would think
Of the golden sands
Where he used to walk
Before the days of his captivity
Or of books he read
Tales of gods
And the golden fleece
And he thought that some day
He would write a book
A book where he would
Work in the kitchen.
