The poem is made up by using the keys on the computer keyboard. Each symbol has a unique name.
Here is the poem, can you read it?
Here is the translation of the poem, "waka waka." There are many different versions. I have made a few modifications for poetic reasons and based on my own knowledge of these keys.
Waka waka bang star tick tick hash,
Caret quote back-tick dollar dollar dash,
Bang star equal at dollar under-score,
Percent star waka waka tilde number four,
Ampersand bracket bracket dot dot slash,
Pipes curly-bracket comma comma CRASH.
This is a simple poem about life. We are born, "bang" and begin life, a "star" breathing, "tick tick." Then we make money, "dollar underscore" get married, "bang star equal" and perhaps have four children, "star..number four." We get old, "bracket bracket."We stutter "dot dot." We cough "comma comma" and die, "CRASH." Closer evaluation is possible, but this thumbnail analysis provides enough to get the scholars started and then creating their own using this code.
