I love leather seats
but this one is a clever illusion
For it is not leather
but crafted carved timber.
Another thing I love is photos in frames
but this is yet another illusion
for it is a cleverly placed frame
allowing you to view the real
and yet another illusion
for this dinosaur is not actually walking on water.
It looks real but see the woman
we have either gone to the Land of the Giants
or this is yet another illusion.
I’m glad I wasn’t a war correspondent
for these are yet another illusion
of things which did happen in WWI
but I am viewing them in 2017
at an aviation museum.
Trickery we were not quite skilled at making
But this illusion nearly worked
Where this illusion I think worked
As spookily these blue things floated
in the darkness of the alleyway.
Some illusions can be whatever you want.
