    How like a winter hath my absence been
    From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year!
    What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen!
    What old December's bareness every where!
    And yet this time removed was summer's time,
    The teeming autumn, big with rich increase,
    Bearing the wanton burden of the prime,
    Like widow'd wombs after their lords' decease:
    Yet this abundant issue seem'd to me
    But hope of orphans and unfather'd fruit;
    For summer and his pleasures wait on thee,
    And, thou away, the very birds are mute;
    Or, if they sing, 'tis with so dull a cheer
    That leaves look pale, dreading the winter's near.

    Meh, it's a bit girlie. Chebus will like it.

    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Metaphors are like a poor man's simile

    You need ice in your veins to use them with aplomb.

    Aplomb is as aplomb does.

    If you, like totally, include that and similar figures of speech - I'd say similies are definitely more common.

    Otherwise I'd say similies are probably more common
