"A Foreign Poem"

I stumbled upon a poem today.

I picked it up and tried to read it.

It felt like my brain had ran astray.

But over, under, upside down I tried, but couldn't heed it.

 

I couldn't get it off my mind.

How this poem could have been written,

How to understand this I couldn't find.

By this poem I was smitten.


The words did not make sense to me.

A blend of words, a scrawl more like.

It plagued me, never was I free.

This poem stabbed me as a pike.


Never in my history.

Had anything confused me as this, this mystery.
