Wow. Iambic pentameter is hard especially if you want to craft it well. I’m sure it’s not a great representation, but it might get you close enough to finish it off on your own.

Iambic pentameter:

(1)Poetic feet confuse my mind so when

(2)I try with just a sigh and not a lot

(3)of sense the sound is sad and mighty bad.

assonance: try, sigh

alliteration:sense, sound, sad (this by the way is sibilance or the repetition of the "s"

 

Paradox: This was heard on the news with regard to the CIA and the government, "We should keep intelligence out of the government."

Metaphor: Vengeance is a double-edged sword cutting both giver and receiver.

Simile:The spring sun cut through the frost like a warm knife through butter.
