The frontier of poetry: the first ten PALINKUs
EDITORS' NOTE from your blogging team of Dr. G. H. and Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym): If you are looking for our easy-to-digest daily blog "Daily ILLUSTRATED NONSENSE", clickHERE.
What you have below is our more encyclopedic blog, "Edifying Nonsense."
An additional point: Where do these palindromes come from?
The majority are in the 'classic repertoire' of this constrained but nonsensical form of writing. The authors are proud to report that they have apparently concocted the remainder.
If you feel that you need more enlightenment about palindromes before proceeding, we have a sort of lesson entitled "POLITICAL PALINDROMES" that appears in serialized form on our other blog "Daily Illustrated Nonsense". You can undertake that adventure by clicking HERE for 'slide A'.
You can continue this astounding journey, exploring our new poetic form. ClickHEREfor more palinkus.
