    What type of Figurative language?

    I just slide my tray along and let the lunch drones fill it. (Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson)
    I think that it is a metaphor. What type of figuratie language is it?

    Does your lunch line have actual bees working it?
    Probably not.
    Your instinct about a metaphor is correct.
