Conflict of Interest: None Declared

As figures of speech, metaphors and similes are poetic pairs, tropes of truth, etudes in similitude, zeitgeist insights, and epiphanies of finesse, which wryly remind us that humanity is interrelated, and should never be underrated or berated. Somehow, metaphors and similes magically make us meet and smile, even if only for a while.
