Here are two extracts from the poem "Once Upon a Time" by Gabriel Imomotimi Okara:

‘Feel at home!’ ‘Come again’:
they say, and when I come
again and feel
at home, once, twice,
there will be no thrice—
for then I find doors shut on me.

I have also learned to say,’Goodbye’,
when I mean ‘Good-riddance’:
to say ‘Glad to meet you’,
without being glad; and to say ‘It’s been
nice talking to you’, after being bored.

Are there any figures of speech in these extracts, and if so, what are they?
