Posted by Leanne on Thursday, September 22, 2011 at 2:31pm.

Can anyone find any poetic devices in this poem?
(metaphors, similes, personification, etc)


AMBITION BY DES WALSH

Once upon a time
A poor man
Named Marcus
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 heroes
Of argonauts
And the golden fleece
And he thought that some day
He would write a book
About himself
A book where he would
Work in the kitchen.
