Pour Some Sugar On Me Similes
Def Leopard portrays the correct usage of similes on several occasions throughout the song, Pour Some Sugar On Me. The first example is seen in the third verse when the line, "Love is like a bomb," is sang. In this verse, Def Leopard is comparing love to a bomb in the sense that it is very precious and can be very harmful if not used appropriately (i.e. abusive relationship, smothering the other). In this sense, love is like a bomb because it can be harmfully inflicted, while being as fragile enough to be destroyed if smothered.
