  • Title: The title What the Businessman said could imply that the character in the poem is going to talk about how the business is really like.
  • By: Michael Mendez & Katie Nguyen
  • Paraphrasing: I jus met a businessman who's here with his family drinking beer at a Christmas party. It seem like they're not from here because the wife bought a drink that's not popular here in Portland. He says what you what you get in life is what you get. You won't be able to complain. Everything is already taken since everything we use is from China. He told me they barely pay you or give you credits from for what you've done. At this point, he's given up.
  • Connotation: The form is in a poetry structure, but only a couple words are in each sentence. Diction: The diction is formal but negative. Imagery- Exercise machines in China for the bodies of American. POV- The businessman said that his work his complicating, which could imply his life. Details: He uses a specific detail, stating China's economy and etc. Allusions- He refers to the gilded age when talking about his work. Symbolism: Non-religious or a given group. Figurative Lang- The labor cost so cheap.
  • Attitude: The attitude of the poem has a repulsive tone. The author seems to agree that life is hard so she provides negative examples in business to convey.
  • Shifts: The poem starts out by introducing a character who is a businessman. It's relaxing at first by talking about him at a bar celebrating a victory, but then it shifts to talking about how his work his hard and that he doesn't always get what he deserves.
  • Title: Life in general is hard enough and trying to make a living is harder. The title is representing the description of how the character describes his life. Theme: You won't get everything you want even when you work hard for it. Life is never that fair.
