North; Center; South - Poem by Farzad Jahanbani

The world;
The city,
In the North,

Is climbing up the mountain;
Is advancing in the forest;
Is expanding into the sea.
Far from there;
In the center;
Is rich from Humanness;
Is moderate in Honour;
Is poor from Heartless;
In the center;
Far from there.
Is contracting into the filth;
Is regressing in the wilderness;
Is falling down the crevasse;

In the South,
The city;
The world.

Here, 'North' and 'South' have two meanings: rich & developed countries / rich areas in cities, opposed to poor & undeveloped countries / poor areas in cities.

The form of this poem, in modern Persian Literature, is called 'Loop', as the beginning and the end of the poem have the same words. Moreover this poem has a symmetric structure because of the symmetric arrangement of each sentence in the poem. Finally maybe this poem classifies in the 'Geometric' form poems too.
