Political Poetry

Political Poetry  can deliver a very powerful message or verse about society. For this reason dictators ban political poetry because it may cause an insurrection,  and many brave poets may risk their lives in writing poetry that is volatile and against the government. However, for freedom of expression, poetry is protected by laws and constitutions in North America and in most countries in Europe. There are three types of political poetry: Revolutionary poetry that advocates overthrowing a government, Patriotic poetry that express love of one's country, and the Protest poetry criticizes government policies.
