Inspired by my favorite, The Hobbit

Did it for an assignment after reading about the history of alphabets. Apparently ancient Greeks used to do something called “boustrophedon” which means “to plow a field with an ox.” It means that they wrote from right to left as usual but every other line went from left to right and the characters would be mirrored. I wanted to use that somehow but for lack of content to demonstrate a writing style, I just chose my favorite riddle from The Hobbit.
