So I wrote this on our study guide for English the other day because my teacher said that we could fill it in with whatever we wanted and still get all 37 points for it. I thought it came out interestingly and I was just interested in what everyone else thought of it. My apologies that it is HUGE!
Feel free to bash it as you see fit. This is not my normal writing style but I wanted to hear some opinions on my creative experiment :)
 
"Poetic Terms"
(Onomatopoeia)

You said that we could

(Simile)

Write whatever random

(Rhyme Scheme)

stuff we wanted to

(Metaphor)

and still get full credit.

(IMPLIED Metaphor)

So I decided to turn this

(EXTENDED Metaphor)

into a haphazard poem

(Parallel Structure)

because you were kind of

(Free Verse)

asking for it.

(Stanza)

Maybe not literally but

(Line Break)

this is obviously way more fun

(Alliteration)

than definitions.

(Internal Rhyme)

And since this is a sheet

(Assonance)

of poetic terms

(Imagery)

it only seems appropriate

(Personification)

to write a poem on it

(Couplet)

and be creative.

(Apostrophe)

Apostrophe? Okay…

(Hyperbole)

I would have tried to put

(Epitaph)

all of these terms

(Haiku)

into the poem –

(Ode)

examples, that is –

(Sonnet)

but by the time I thought

(Analogy)

of that – it was too late.

(Oxymoron)

Oh well – some other day.

(Juxtaposition)

And don’t worry about

(Rhythm)

doing well on the quiz:

(Meter)

I made a copy in my head,

(Symbolism)

wrote all the real answers there

(Irony)

so I can just

(Allusion)

shut my eyes

(Idiom)

look inside my head,

(Puns)

search through my virtual filing cabinet,

(Double Entendre)

pull out the other version of this paper,

(Colloquialism)

and stare at it thoughtfully.

(Dialect)

And this was

(Syntax)

so completely random.

(Extended Simile)

I wonder what I’ll do with it.

I like this! definitely reflects the nature of the assignment (ramndom, no limits) And surely more fun than writing in definitions! This is very cool, I would have probably been that kid to write in the definitions anyway XD Great work! Very creative

Thanks! I probably should have written the definitions...but it was too much effort. I only realized how long it actually was when I realized that there were 37 terms and I wrote a line for each of them
