this or that

they say a picture is
worth a thousand words
so I guess a picture of a
pile of shit
has more to say than I do
I write another
969 words

they say that books
are always better
than the movie

how then
could a moving picture
that goes on for over 2 hours
not tell a better story than the
written word

it looks to me like
we�ve been bamboozled
all these years
and I can�t figure out
whether to look at more
or read more

decisions like this
plague me daily
creating forks of thought
and decisions
that shape the rest of
my life
