|Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes. 1916.|
| Like the walnut tree,|
The more he is beaten, the better hell be.
| Beaten as a road.|
| My brain is beating like the heart of Haste.|
| Beaten like a Turco that pawns his musket.|
| Beats like a maniac drummer in mid-battle.|
T. Buchanan Read
| Each falling hoof|
Beat like a flail beneath the threshers roof.
| Beat, like the pulse, perpetual.|
