In ten pictures, I’ve seen ten thousand words,
Yet in ten words, I’ve found ten thousand more.
‘Course they wouldn’t tell you of that magic,
Not anymore, not nowadays. Not when
We hunger, feed, thirst, and drink for vision.
Not when we are pacified by color.
Not when we are made ravenous by lust.
By the need to see, rather than to know.
By the need to have, rather than to hold.
By that carnal, burning desire to win,
‘Ther than admit defeat for the greater good.
But I can show you a world divine,
Where true lovers rest, and heroes reside.
Where the wars are fought for nobility,
And the wind’s pass us by much more slowly.
A world with some truth, and pain, and lies,
And a world where good men go to die.
But a world more real than on TV
Hides within those pages for you and me.
Those ten thousand words can last a lifetime
While pictures fade as memories decline.
