Epitaph Poetry


An Epitaph is a brief poem inscribed on a tombstone praising the life of a deceased person usually with rhyming lines.

Today, we are writing epitaphs about everyday objects instead of a deceased person.

Step 1: Take some time to think about something you use all the time. It could be a computer, a toaster, or an electric toothbrush.....the choice is yours.
