Epigram - Rule the World and Social Butterfly



Epigram – A rhyming couplet with the same meter of humor. It mainly expresses social criticism or politics.

Rule the World

To rule the world, one must claim a side.
Make sure to practice lies, and lose your pride.

Social Butterfly

I flit around from one social network to the next.
No more phone calls received, just a few friendless cold text.


Satire and criticism,
Bea

    My helmet sits upon my weary head ─
    My rifle, now replaces pencil lead.

  2. The first one rings quite true. It is my favorite of the two. But then considering I pretty much only communicate via text (unless in person) most of the time, the second describes my life.

  3. What is an Epigram? A dwarfish whole, Its body brevity, and wit its soul. - Samuel Taylor Coleridge
