Reversing Verse: Limericks About CLASSIC PALINDROMES, part #3

 This post provides a continuation of previous wordplay collections displayed in December 5, 2020, and January 5, 2021. In those earlier posts, the following classic palindromes (phrases or sentences whose letters are ordered identically when they are read backwards as well as forwards) were described and extolled in verse; contents were as follows: 


1. Dennis sinned            
2. Drawn onward
3Gnu dung
4. Yreka bakery
5. Lonely Tylenol
6. UFO tofu
7. Too hot to hoot
8. Never odd or even 
9. Sex at noon taxes
10. No 'X' in Nixon.
11. A Santa at NASA
12. T. Eliot's toilet
13. Madam, I'm Adam
14. Sex of foxes
15. Able ere Elba
16. A Toyota's a Toyota

CURRENT CONTENTS
Please note that, continuing the convention adopted in the previous post , there will be an exclusive correlation between green italicized font and palindromes. But not all of the palindromes displayed within the verses' lines are in the 'classic repertoire'. Some are recent concoctions by the author.
 
17. Mr. Owl ate my metal worm
18. Emil's lime
19. To idiot: (The palindromic grouch)
20. A dim or fond 'No!' from Ida
21. No lemon, no melon (fruitless)
22. See bees
23. Ma is as selfless as I am
24. O stone, be not so (Roger Stone)















Canadians being known as polite and apologetic, the Editors, themselves native Torontonians, recommend only circumspect use of all the palindromes listed in the outpourings by the protagonist of the above verse.





























Stay tuned for further posts that will bring you poetic discussion of more classic palindromes:
