Title: Boustrophedon explained...

Boustrophedon: as the ox turns in ploughing.

THIS IS A STYLE USED BY THE ANCIENT GREEKS AND SHOULD BE READ LEFT TO RIGHT, THEN RIGHT TO LEFT: LIKE A ZIG-ZAG I GUESS.

Take the wrong bus: travel to

.snake a road the, town of parts new

Brake squeals appeal and go right through

.shake, shimmer, rattle Windows. you

Winding, lost,

.winding, lost

Bus like Ivy fingers growing,

.ruts hidden into flowing

Must be close, no way of knowing.

.trust I late be to Going

Winding, lost,

.winding, lost

Then a turn of revelation:

.bend the round conurbation

Send a prayer of exaltation.

.friend my gone Trepidation

Smiling, found,

.smiling, found
