    Invective Verse / Lampoon

    Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry Latin Verse Invective Verse is a genre of poetry that has its roots in ancient Greece but blossomed in ancient Rome. This genre includes denunciatory or abusive language attacking political and public figures with a slightly satirical tone. Although most were written "anonymously", Catullus, Cicero, and Juvenal seemed to have no problem taking credit for their dabbling in the dark side. These were usually written in the form of epigrams. Lampoon is modern day Invective Verse. The modern poem can target anyone, not just politician or public figures
