In the ancient years, people didn’t care about how to block and remove adware from Google Chrome. Their needs and wants were deeper and basic, and they cared about community. In our days, artists care about the needs of a community like equality, no discrimination, respect, evolution of ideas, engagement, various activities belonging to our interest, trying to find ways to express their worries. Poetry has developed new forms of communication in order to be respected again in the louder societies that we humans have created.
