    Wouldn't be surprised if it was put there specifically to result in your confusion. :p Actually you'd be surprised how common it is for people to make up random languages/codes on the train, plane, etc, just because they are bored. Afterall, why would anyone write a message on paper on a train, unless they suddenly had some sort of compulsion or were inspired (in this case apparently, a poem was intended perhaps?). Even with this being the case, it's clearly not in a real language, because it is obviously rare in the extreme (it would be unlikely for some Native American language to surface on a German commuter train), and if it was meant seriously why would they have forgotten it?

    I put it through google translater and it detected Slovenian, but couldn't give me a translation, so I'm not so sure.

    However it does look Slavic to me po-, katsa, tvete.... all those consonants
    I don't think it's Romance. I'd understand more of it.

    These verses are widely commented on internet. They seem famous in the blogosphere. Many believe it's a made up language or some kind of joke or hoax, maybe poetry, others say it originated in Russia and is some local or regional "Russian" language. It also is written in Cyrillic. For those who read Russian there is more information on the net but I don't know what...
