This week we are starting our poetry unit. While many students claim to not understand poetry, most listen to poetry each day. Song lyrics are simply poetry set to music. Just like poetry, song lyrics use figurative language and convey a message to the listener. What is your favorite "poem set to music" (song title) that includes figurative language? Identify the type of figurative language used in the song, quote the line, and explain the meaning of the figurative language. You may not use one of the songs we cover in class. If you do not complete all parts of the discussion board assignment, your answer will be deleted and you will not receive credit. You may set your answer up in the following way:
1. song title
2. type of figurative language used
3. quote the line
4. What is the writer saying with the figurative language?
Remember, all comments must be appropriate for publication. Also remember to use complete sentences and read the prompt carefully. Responses to the discussion board are due by 11:59 P.M. on Friday. Points will be deducted for posts which do not meet the assignment requirements or that are not grammatically correct.
