Predictable  Poor as a church mouse.  strong as an ox,  cute as a button,  smart as a fox.  thin as a toothpick,  white as a ghost,  fit as a fiddle,  dumb as a post.  bald as an eagle,  neat as a pin,  proud as a peacock,  ugly as sin.  When people are talking  you know what they'll say  as soon as they start to  use a cliché.  © 2000 Bruce Lansky Find the similes in this poem by Bruce Lansky!
