    Question in verse or prose?

    Hi, just had two questions:

    I don't understand what is meant when something is either in verse or prose?
    i.e. shown at this link in answer#2
    satire - Definitions from

    Would it be safe to say that the John F Kennedy’s Inauguration address 1961 used Satire as a tool to emphasize the speech? I don't know if I'm clear on what satire really mean?

    Advanced Thanks

    Re: in verse or prose?

    Verse is another word for poetry, prose is almost any other type of writing besides poetry (what you're reading right now is prose).

    There was no satire at all in Kennedy's speech.
