SUBSTITUTE LYRICS are subbed into TWO original songs, making this a a pair-ody.
SONGLINK: Click here to see the song-lyrics with chord charts formatted for performers on ukulele and guitar (other string instruments can probably benefit as well.)

part #1(to the tune of The Christmas Song - "Chestnuts Roasting")
Essay featured in Economist,
Turkeys' origins disclosed -
Centerpiece of each year's Yuletide feast,
Subspecies bred in Mexico.

REVERSING VERSE: Illustrated Limericks About CLASSIC PALINDROMES

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym) and Dr. GH, 2018-2019. Today's verses have also been published or remain under review at OEDILF.com (Omnificent Engl
Palindromes have been featured on our blogsite EDIFYING NONSENSE since its inception. The concept of 'goofy' variants on classical palindromes was honored as the topic of three blog-postings that you can link to here.
A to H post#20 ; I to O post#29 ; P to Z post #40. Indeed, the goofy variants are often the key to teasing rhymes from this otherwise inflexible form of wordplay.
Incidentally, artwork, including photos, as well as poetry, are the creation of this website's author-editors unless otherwise indicated. The original 'inventors' of the classic palindromes have generally not been reported, and are best regarded as having been lost in the sands of time.
SONGLINK: For those readers who like poetry set to music: You can find lots of singable limerick medleys on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE".
Please note that beyond this point in the presentation, there will be an exclusive correlation between green italicized font and palindromes (phrases or sentences whose letters are ordered identically when they are read backwards as well as forwards)
