Directions: Read some of the lyrics from Katy Perry's, "Firework."
Then, answer the questions that follow IN YOUR READER'S NOTEBOOK. 

Do you ever feelLike a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again
Do you ever feel
Feel so paper-thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in
Do you ever feel
Already buried deep
Six feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there’s
Still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you
You just gotta
Ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July
‘Cause baby, you’re a firework
Come on show them what you’re worth
Make them go, “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky
1. Identify TWO different literary devices/examples of figurative language with lines for support. 
2. Explain what Katy Perry was trying to show with each example.

For example:
In the line, "as you shoot across the sky," katy perry uses hyperbole.  She is exaggerating by saying someone will actually shoot across the sky, when this is not actually possible.  She does this to show how amazing the listener can be and how much the listener can impress people, almost as if she/he was speeding through the sky like a firework.
