How would I add the following to my poem I made?

o Alliteration

o Consonance
o Assonance

You can judge them for the way they look

You say those clothes are so last year

You can even offer them yours

You walk by someone and call them a slut

You tell people they are better known for what they do in bed

You point and even yell it out

You don’t even know them

You call a person fat

Then tell them to watch what they eat

You do it in front of their “friends”

You say they’re gay

That they shouldn’t like such things

Everyone agrees

Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of each word such as Sally sold sea shells by the sea shore.

Consonance is similar but different. For instance, the repetition of two or more consonant sounds are within the word and neighboring words such as My mommy's hands were clammy. The repetition of the "mm's" within the words, not at the beginning of the words as with alliteration.

Assonance is a little different. This has to do with the repetiition of vowel sounds, such as You too are true. The repetition of the /ou/ or /oo/ sounds is present.

In terms of incorporating these into your poem, you'll have to see where you can change your wording around and blend some of these devices together without changing the meaning of your poem. Be patient when revising. Write your ideas down and then organize if needed.
