An epitaph is a brief poem inscribed on a tombstone praising a deceased person, usually with rhyming lines.
What happened to me, was not good,
Hit by a car, bounced off the hood,
Would get up, if only I could,
Now here I lay, where once I stood.

Here lies One-Eyed Willie
Who died while laughing himself silly.
He drank too much liquor
That started his snicker
and ended up six feet under.
