      A strange, remarkable undeciphered (maybe) script (if it’s that) is the one(s) on the Phaistos Disc ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phaistos_Disc ).  There’s a bit of eh diversity of proposed decipherments ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phaistos_Disc_decipherment_claims ).

      Here’s some of  the poetry that one scholar wrang out of a Bronze-Age Basque “translation”:

      The lordling skimming the girdle-tracks, the lord clenching the fist, bruising the skin

      with delight, hewing at the flower of the teeth,

      smiting with cestus, driving home; the lord walking on wings the breathless path, the star-smiter,

      the foaming gulf of waters, dogfish smiter on the creeping flower;

      Extra! extra! read all about it!  The Zodiac Stalks Bronze-Age Crete.

      Is it actually concrete poetry?
