For this post, choose a song whose lyrics you would classify as poetry, and describe/list the literary devices the songs uses.
For example, one song that I like and that I feel can be classified as poetry is Leonard Cohen's "Anthem." I would classify it as poetry because it uses parallelism and antithesis and a multitude of symbols and metaphors, as in this stanza:
The holy dove
she will be caught again,
bought and sold
and bought again:
the dove is never free.
In addition to these literary devices, I like the song's theme, the idea that our imperfections are what give our lives meaning; it's a paradox: our weakness is our strength.
