An Epigram is a short satirical and witty poem usually written as a couplet or quatrain but can also just be a one lined phrase. It is a brief and forceful remark with a funny ending. The term epigram derives from the Greek word 'epi- gramma' meaning inscription or to inscribe.

Don’t give up hope, when it’s all you’ve got, you dope! Written Nov. 21st , 2015 for “Epigram couplet - Poetry Contest”.
