Palindromes: Forewords and Backwords

A Palindrome is a word, verse, or sentence which reads the same backwards or forwards.  Examples are the words “mom”, “dad”, “eye”, “radar”.   A palindrome sentence example is “Rats live on no evil star.”

The first palindrome I ever wrote is “To he Russ, a wanderer, a darer, Edna was sure hot.”  Sure it has a small grammatical mistake (the word “he” necessarily substituted for the the correct word “him”), but not bad, eh?

Below is an example of a palindrome poem I wrote.  Each line is a palindrome.  Notice how some lines comprise partial sentences which are completed on the following lines!  It’s quite a trick to construct a poem like this and still retain some semblance of meaning.  Give it a try!

Evil Lip-Spill

(evil lip-spill i’ve):
“I am not on RADAR…not on, Ma. I
revile life, defile liver.
And on evil lip-spill I’ve no DNA.”

“Dogma: I AM GOD!”
(God am i? o’ no, i’m a dog):
“Go fecal laminar animal! Lace fog
tops no evil lip-spill I’ve on Spot.”

(mad-Devil?): “Lived dam’
deft, fast rafter Bret: farts aft, fed.
Lassie meows! Woe me is, Sal.
De-plug evil lip-spill I’ve gulped.”

“Lo! Re-vomit putrid dirt! Up, Tim! …over ol’
red, nude wolf-rats! Tar flowed under
one son’s revolting nit lover’s nose.” (no,
evil am i! dastard, evil lip-spill i’ve! …drat…sad i’m alive).
