I came across this about 4 years ago in a Perl mailing list, and I thought it was pretty. The "translation" of this punctuation "poem" is :

  1. Waka waka bang splat tick tick hash,
  2. Caret at back-tick dollar dollar dash,
  3. Bang splat tick dollar under-score,
  4. Percent splat waka waka number four,
  5. Ampersand right-paren dot dot slash,
  6. Vertical-bar curly-bracket tilde tilde CRASH.

I've found another one tonight, as pretty as the first one (and probably as old as well, by the way)

  1. ^<@<.@*
  2. }"_# |
  3. -@$&/_%
  4. !(  @|=>
  5. ;`+$?^?
  6. ,#"~|)^G

Which "says" :

  1. hat less at less point at star
  2. backbrace double base pound space bar
  3. dash at cash and slash base rate
  4. wow open tab at bar is great
  5. semi backquote plus cash huh DEL
  6. comma pound double tilde bar close BEL
