The [ ] and = should be doubled.  But all this is not needed, all you need is:

python test.py && python second.py

However, you need to explicitly stack all the commands you want to
execute this way — so, if there are more things, `set -e` might also
be of use. (you would need an even uglier tree for `if`s.)
