Does Poetry have anything to say about modern life?

And yes, I get the irony of describing this online. But 2 viewpoints worth hearing as they are utterly opposite and relate to modern society. Worth noting that both poets are male. Both have elements of truth, both are heavily biased towards one view and both have pools of shallow reasoning where cause/effect and consequences are not dipped into overmuch. But they get you thinking. And possibly talking. Whether you discuss that in person with a friend over coffee or tweet about it – or both – are your modern life choice.
