Postmodern poem written during my 7th trip to Washington D.C. to "intervene in history".

Fast forward film techniques
Used in motion picture production
Suggest future earthly conditions,
While grasping to understand the moment

I have no answer in regard
To postmodernism's dissatisfaction;
Ten thousand complaints from
Ten thousand people I have heard

I read the Washington Post today, oh boy
No mention of Peace House or veterans' vigils
We are now all besieged by tons of social networking
Messages worldwide. Okay everybody, where's the peace?
