Thought I'd add this which I saw upon a wall almost washed away :
Today I climbed a stairand saw a man who was not there
I climbed the stair again today
I wish, i wish
he go away

I also found another site with posts and theres so many versions!

Is direct plagiarisation of Hughes Mearns' poem, apart from a couple of
exclamation marks. Shame on him.

This poem is a blatant plagiarism of one by Hughes Mearns (1875-1965)

Antigonish (1899)

As I was going up the stair
I met a man who wasn't there!
He wasn't there again today!
I wish, I wish he'd stay away!
