Who told you we can't use Klingon words metaphorically?

Maybe you have misunderstood the warnings against trying to translate
idiomatic phrases in another language literally. For example, {yopwaH
bIDwIj yISop} isn't likely to carry the meaning intended by the
English phrase it is translated from. But there's no problem using
metaphor in Klingon. You do know what "metaphor" means, right?
