A Mixture of Similies and Metaphors

I feel like a limp
dish cloth
When I walk across
a busy street

The cars were running
back and forth
As if they were
heading for a party

The rain was a mass of
eye drops
Pitter pattering
on the sidewalk

The sidewalk was
so slippery
It made the snails
slide down like a kid on a slide

A lesson for students: A similie is a comparison. it uses the words like or as.
An example of this is: The little boy looked like a big giant. A metaphor is a comparison that doesn’t use like or as. An example of this would be The little boy was a giant. This sentence did not use the words like or as. See if you can find which lines use metaphors and which line uses similies.
