A very short, ironic and witty poem usually written as a brief couplet or quatrain. The term is derived from the Greek epigramma meaning inscription.


Montgomery lies in sweet repose.
Her husband caught him with Sweet Rose!

The night grows dark; the shadows long,
the musty smell is thick and strong.
Anne, once glad that she had married him,
is gladder now that she has buried him!
