    1. Simile: ‘His claw fell like a giant club’. This line compares the force behind the claw of a tiger to that of a giant club with the usage of the word ‘like’, making it a simile.
    2. Alliteration: A couple of examples would be ‘crawl and crouch’ and ‘hyenas hound’.
    3. Enjambment: Sentences run over to the next line in this poem to give a sense of continuity. A couple of examples would be ‘So he would belly-crawl and crouch/ And take a long circular route’, and ‘His claw fell like a giant club/ On neck and antler-both were crushed’.
