Just Talking Figuratively By – Christopher Rudolph © 2013  

Alliteration makes your tongue tingle too
Personification makes the wind howl and coo
Hyperbole will grant your wish
You’ll have no problem catching a million fish
Now, I’m just talking figuratively
So, please don’t take me literally

Alliteration makes squirrels skip and skate
Personification makes your alarm clock irate
Hyperbole lets you have some fun
You’ll be so strong you can lift a ton
Now, I’m just talking figuratively
So, please don’t take me literally

Alliteration lets you eat pink peach pie
Personification lets stars dance across the sky
Hyperbole lets you whistle a sweet tune
You can go where you want even fly to the moon
Now, I’m just talking figuratively
So, please don’t take me literally

Alliteration lets you twist, tumble, and tuck
Personification lets you talk to a crazy duck
Hyperbole lets you do more still
You’ll grow older than those big old hills
Now, I’m just talking figuratively
So, please don’t take me literally

Alliteration makes my stomach roar, roll, and rumble
Personification makes the thunder grumble
Hyperbole is exaggeration of course
You’ll be so hungry you’ll eat a horse
Now, I’m just talking figuratively
So, please don’t take me literally

Alliteration makes you try, try, try
Personification makes the sad clouds cry
Hyperbole will help you make rhymes
I think I‘ve told you this a million times
Now, I’m just talking figuratively
So, please don’t take me literally
