Quite possibly my favorite form of poetry is an epigram. You probably see them all the time, but don’t often recognize them for what they are.
An Epigram is like a couplet, in that it’s usually only two to four lines. The difference is that it’s supposed to be satirical. Here’s one I wrote.
Afghanistan interpreters who risk their lives
treated like less than a donkey, to their surprise
If you can’t tell, the plight of people from Afghanistan who help our soldiers by volunteering as interpreters is kind of a sore subject for me. If you want to help, there’s a kickstarter here that you can donate to.
Anyway, try out the epigram, and feel free to post yours below.
