Globalization Mirrors Modern Poetry

Modern poetry is a representation of freedom. It does not follow any strict rules and it can take any form and direction. It demonstrates “stasis” which symbolizes going around in a circle. Globalization mirrors this description of modern poetry. In simple words, globalization is defined as the movement of ideas, people, technology, borders, goods, and services from one place to another. It has made the world more unpredictable and smaller. Similarly, it is not easy to understand and follow the pattern of modern poetry. It is quite unpredictable as well. Globalization is often followed by democratization and liberation of the societies. This form is reflected in the context and also the content of modern poems. Both globalization and modern poetry represent freedom which is largely symbolic of United States of America. Also the idea of modern poetry and globalization first emerged in the USA. Both these forms also represent gender equality in the contemporary world. Globalization goes around in a circle and a large portion of modern poems also does the same. This analogy is definitely imperfect and somewhat nonsensical but it does relate to poetry in some way or another.

Hey listen- Ruab Waraich

I sit here dreaming, thinking

O! I sit here doing nothing

And yet something

What am I wearing today

Let me see

What am I saying?


Uncle Whitman, and Eliot will be upset

So don’t ask

Just listen to what I say.

Peeps are dying out there sweetheart

I thought killing another was a sin

Is God really dead?

Or is it mankind dying out slowly?

Who knows?

So I’ll let you think about it

But for now just listen to what I say.

Hey Assad

What up with you?

You think sarin is cool

Well! Thank you for letting us know

That UN is an unstable fool

Have you any idea how many you killed?

Even if you do I don’t care

Because I don’t like you

Hey you, yes you reading this

Did you listen

This badass got the Syrians

We sit and watch helpless

Some world policemen did come out for help

But alas! Since when did realists start making honest liberal yelp.

Are you bored?


Boy go start a war then

Come on!

Just listen to what I say

O! what am I wearing today?

Let me see
