The Illiterate Man

What does this say?

I asked the illiterate man

I did not know

that he was illiterate

and he did not know

what it said

 

The newspaper read

“The Thane has Returned!”

Everyone knew

But the man did not know

for he could not read

for he was illiterate

 

Sir, I cannot read!

He said to me

Where do you live?

I asked the man

He did not know

He could not see

 

He knew not

that the Thane had returned

for he could not read

for he was illiterate

for he was blind

and he knew not where he lived
