We have a thread that is for writing an elegy, most people seemed to equate that with an epitaph, it is actually a sad poem, so epitaphs are often both. An epitaph is the wording on a tombstone, or praise of someone dead.
Anyway this thread is inspired by Spike Milligan and Ezra Pound who wrote their own epitaphs.
‘Dúirt mé leat go raibh mé breoite’, or ‘I told you I felt ill’, for Spike and;
‘Here lies the body of Ezra Pound
Lost at sea and never found.’ for Ezra
So how about writing your own epitaph, what would you like on your gravestone?
Here is mine, though I might think of alternatives.
Here is the grave of Olly
Remember his life and be jolly,
This is an invite, so grab the chance
Step on my grave and have a dance.
