Can someone please tell me how this paragraph would be rated? Literary technique paragraph using the second paragraph of the Jan 2011 regent.

In passage 2, the author Marge Piercy uses similie to portray the hard work people he loves best do. Similes compare one item to another. In the poem "To Be Of Use," Piercy compares the hard workers to an ox pulling heavy load. As the passage states "I love the people who harness thmeselves, an ox to heavy cart." Piercy also describes how those who are working very hard have a lot of paitience. This point is brought across,yet with another simile. The passage reads "who pull like a water-buffalo, with massive patience. All these show how the author Marge Piercy used similes to portray how hard the people in Piercy's life work.
