    Post I need help!!!

    A silver-scaled dragon with jaws flaming red
    Sits at my elbow and toasts my bread.
    I hand him fat slices, and then, one by one,
    He hands them back when he sees they are done.

    What two things are being compared in this poem??

    What do the two things have in common?

    I really appreciate anyone's help

    Thank you very much

    The poem is clearly about a toaster, but I do not see any 'comparison' as such. Maybe you mean that the writer is comparing a toaster to a dragon and the two things have in common their ability to light up fiery red when hot and burn anything that enters its mouth ?
