"Poetry" denotes a form of literary art that leverages the sensorial quality of language to create a unique esthetic experience and/or additional meaning. There is a large subset of of poetic genres ranging from full scale epics to pure sensorial verse. Authors wishing to use this genre for satirical purposes must avoid straight denigration and bad taste. They should just keep in mind that the most powerful pieces of satire were often written in a way that let everybody get the message without providing any angle for prosecuting the authors even in the context of total censorship and authoritarian regimes.
