Your poem does not have to take a specific form, but it should reflect elements of the Modern era in its tone and content. Your poem must be at least the length of a sonnet, but it can be longer. Try to include one of the allusions you created in the beginning of this unit. Craft carefully, and do as much planning as necessary. When you are ready, type your final draft.
