A Thousand Words

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words,
But I disagree.
“A picture’s worth a thousand words”
So what does that mean?

Are pictures more important?
Well, that wouldn’t be too good.
Words explain why you shouldn’t
And tell you what you should.

My pictures can’t be seen.
My pictures are only heard.
My words tell what has been.
My words will change the world.

I put to you, good people,
My pictures are worth more.
My pictures speak of good and evil.
My words are the pictures I’m speaking for.

If a picture’s worth a thousand words,
Well, I can beat that score!
If a picture’s worth a thousand words,
My words are worth a thousand more.
