Count the Steps

Written by: Timothy Mullins

A shadow of an image
Tricked by what it seemed
It takes all by surprise
So don't be fooled 
When it tricks your mind
If you look once you will be fooled
And twice you will be baffled
the third time your mind will twist
And forth you'll never see it 
But five and six you'll come too quick
To see the trick it has shown
By the number seven
Your mind will be blown to bits
By ten the spoiled secret 
Will bring a smile when you see
It was just a illusion
Because you looked the other way
Which may seem odd to others 
But they'll understand some day
When they see that the image was 
Just a look as simple as
Counting all the steps
But leaving out 9 and 8
