PALINDROMES: new and previously published

Editor: Giorgio Coniglio, February, 2017 (In an earlier form, this collection had been posted in a blogpost on "Giorgio's Ukable Parodies")

A surprising proportion of palindromes is characterized by themes of denial, reproach, disparagement, sarcasm and prudery. Some of this wordplay has been listed here in the 2 previous posts "Satan and His Devilish Palindromes", and "Palindromic Blurts from Ed, the Derailed Liar". 

Here are some more examples.
