Don't think about a zebra

Don't think about a zebra
no matter what you do,
for, if you ever think of one,
then soon you'll think of two.

And, after that, you'll think of three.
And then you'll think of four.
Then five or six or seven zebras.
Maybe even more.

And then you'll think of zebra herds
stampeding down the street,
and zebras wearing tutus,
disco-dancing to a beat.

You'll think of flying ninja zebras
practicing kung fu.
And zebra clowns from outer space.
And robot zebras too.

And zebras in pajama bottoms
bouncing on their beds,
and maybe even zebras
wearing diapers on their heads.

You'll wish you'd never thought of them,
so do it starting now:
Don't think about a zebra.
Only think about a cow.
