Submitted Palindromes: Intro to presenters, #5 -- Hal Lelujah



To help eager readers move back and forth, here are links to the profiles of each of our seven frequent (and usually dependable) contributors to our open request for submitted palindromes.
The editors feel that palindromes are inherently present in our language, so the presence of the less famous items is reported, discovered, or re-discovered by these writers, rather than being the "creation" of a particular word-artist. In other words you may have seen some of their offerings on other lists of palindromes, but that is no problem for us.

MAY 20 (2020), political palindromes, N- P

 

Glitch Notice: The first palindrome should read: Biden One dib. 





Oddly, you have reached a set of palindromes designated by the letter 'P', (left lower corner), and you can't go forwards, i.e. there are no more.

To go BACKWARDS, return to the previous set ('O') on September 13, 2020.

OR, return to the ORIGINAL POST ('A') on this topic

No, worse! Panders to idiots, rednapes. Row on!  

'Nit up' -- sides reversed is -- 'Putin'. 

Nip in if I pull up. Pull up if I nip in.

Golf, par, sin-net, pant. Nap, tennis, rap, flog.

"I" on a rap - paranoia.

S,W,E,N (x?) of Fox News.

Star? Come Don. No Democrats.

Elba? Rudy, "Baby, durable!"

PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym) and Dr. GH, April 2019. Today's verses are under review, or have have been finally accepted for web-publication at OEDILF.com, an online humour dictionary that has accumulated over 105,000 carefully edited poems. 

PHOTOS: Unless otherwise noted, embedded photographs were taken with and transferred from Giorgio's cellphone, then formatted using  Powerpoint software. No photographic subjects were reimbursed for participating in this undertaking. 

BACKGROUND:  "herpetology" - the branch of zoology dealing with reptiles and amphibians. Readers should note that snakes have intentionally been given short shrift in this poetic idyll owing to the marked aversion by the editor's life-partner.

previous poems posted (original collection)

CURRENT CONTENTS:

Authors' Note: A profusion of tiny setae (filament-hairs) on the lizards' palm-pads, as shown by electron microscopy, explain the gecko's unusual gravity-defying mobility.




Gila monsters are found in southern California, Arizona and northern Mexico. They should enjoy ongoing changes in our climate.

Hello! I'm your social
