Synecdoche



She is clever and bright
She is known as "the brain"
This is synecdoche, her whispering campaign

He is robust and tough
He is know as "the strong"
This is synecdoche, his practicing health song

She is serene and calm
She is known as "the cool"
This is synecdoche, her consoling peace school

He is tender and warm
He is know as "the good"
This is synecdoche, his looming brotherhood

She is humane and kind
She is known as "the heart"
This is synecdoche, her nurturing jump start

He is balanced and fair
He is know as "the judge"
This is synecdoche, his unrelenting trudge
