How can we teach a child to reach beyond himself and touch a star, we who have stooped so low ?
How can we tell a child to dwell in honor and live and die for truth, we who have lived a lie ?
How can we say to him the way of life is through the gate of love, we who have learned to hate ?
How can we teach a child to pray and turn him toward the way of faith. We who no longer pray ?
Personally, I am always suspicious of Reverends who quote "poems" given to them by a man named Charles.
And how has this guy grown up without having ever heard the term 'post-modernism?'
Also, he's wrong- the Jetson's house is futuristic, not post-modern.
Also, for someone bragging of having learned about post-modernism he appears surprisingly incapable of communicating anything interesting or illuminating about it.
Perhaps not surprising, when you consider what a nebulous concept it is. I have often asked supposed intellectuals of the literary and art worlds what post-modernism means without getting concise or coherent answers.
I did however receive one from Australian poet/academic Jennifer Strauss who without a moment's hesitation answered "Failure of faith in form".
