  • STRUCTURE
  • 
  •  The conflict of the poem is to consider the consequences of murder will be a low price because the person deserve to be murdered and finally other people will agree with it; and the theme of the poem is about when the person is dominated by hate it's possible to do horrible things and think that's no problem with it. We consider the meaning of this poem is sometimes we create justifies to our acts to turn them more comfortable to get along, thats are our "euthanasia", but we always to get along with the consequences of our acts. 
  • Someday I’m going to strangle you
  • MEANING

  • IMAGERY
  •  The poem is a 19-line and doesn't have a fixed form, so it's an open form. In addition, the poem was written in 1st person, because the speaker uses the word "I" many times, saying things like: “I'm” and “I'll” (line 1 and 5, for example). The rhyme scheme is AABBBCCDEECEAAAAAAA and also there is iambic dimeter, for example at lines 3 and 4. From the speaker's speech he seems to has a certain mental insanity, in line 18: "laugh maniacally", demonstrates this idea and at the poem appears that the speaker is talking directly to the person he is planning to strangle, as in the poem there is a lot of the word "you" (lines 1 and 8, for example) , thus showing this idea.

  • The imagery of this poem is visual, because we can imagine the aspect of some actions like "to strangle" (line 1) and "laugh maniacally" (lines 2 and 18), "and with a smile / I’ll call the police and start my trial" (lines 4 and 5). 
  •  We find examples of alliteration in line 1,4, 5,6,12 (Someday/smile/start/such/some/save); 2,5,6 (maniacally/my/mess); 8,9,13,15 (what/ were/ while/ will/ world). Consonance in lines 1,2,9 (going/strangle/maniacally/among); Internal Rhymes in lines 13,14 (more/ more), (you/you); 18,19 (maniacally/maniacally). Assonance in lines 3,4 (while/ smile); 15 (and/ wearing).Line 15 presents Metonymy, when the speaker says: “wearing prison blue”, because the speaker uses this term to refer to the prison uniform. Thus, it refers to the speaker as being a prisoner. There is Aposthrophe, for example, in line 1: (you) the speaker addresses a listener who is not present. There is anaphora in lines 2,4,15,18 (and); 5,7,17 (I’ ll); 10-11 (a); 13-14 (no more). There is Epistrophe in lines 1, 13,14 17 (you); 2, 18,19 (do).

  •  The speaker's tone is one of anger/revenge, the poem is like an obsessive revenge or murder plot. After reading the poem, his message brings us a great impact, as the speaker knew that the act of killing someone was something wrong, as in the excerpt: "I'll call the police and start my trial", reinforcing the idea of that the speaker was aware that he was committing a crime, but believed he was doing it for a greater good, being thus willing to accept the consequences that this would bring, such as using "prison blue", referring to going to prison as a penalty for having killed someone. However, when we are reading the poem, we have the idea that the speaker is someone with mental problems and insane thoughts, but who has some sense of justice.
