it is just a rhyme, is it not?

the old adage says that a picture
is worth a thousand words,
and it is hard to argue with that
when looking at odessa steps.
yet i can not escape the power
of words, even if it is just a rhyme
that starts with the familiar
remember, remember, recalled
when in the silence of my study
i hear the distant sounds
of bonfire night.
