I follow The Guardian blog and often comment. Recently a Dada poem was posted and enthused over but I just don't get it. Neither the vocal symmetry nor the surreal meaning of it and therefore commented on it. However, it seems I'm in the minority, what do you guys think?

Here it is and also a link to the blog and its comments:

You should think yourself lucky they didn't tear your throat out!
I don't get it either. I'm not sure that it's worth getting either.
