Some more palindromes

To get at so pat a fate, pat a pet a fat apostate got.

Steel feet up: manipulate metal up in amputee fleets.

"No bar got stops, so my mate got tops!" rhymed arty Amy, eh ... they may trade my HR spot to get Amy moss pots to grab on.

Sex alert: in a mask comes a consort, seam not pure, hair astray, roving in ebony, no benign ivory art sari ...ah, erupt on maestros; no case mocks a man it relaxes.

No Roman ward's drawn, a moron saw, as no Roman ward's drawn a moron.

At arts fora, was a dialytic a decimal sign in a waning Islamic edacity laid as a war of strata?

Sex I felt, so pay zoo bastard rats a boozy apostle fixes.

Di can okay a yak on acid.

Devils send a mere home-made man I named a memo: "Here madness lived."

Homophone palindrome

"Wen ewe new won sun, obey. Eye no he nose won, even owes one honey eye bonus, now wen ewe new."

Or said another way: When you knew one son, obey. I know he knows one, even owes one honey eye bonus,
now when you knew.

'drome poem - T'was the night before Christmas

(Mark, I added a few lines to last year's version)

Was in eve, Noel good.
A la-la fast firewood.

Rats still, it’s no dog stir.
A fate’s not old elf fur.

Tenth gin dims even a nap.
Test ego’s sleep on tie cap.

No tie mittens are knit.
E-nog site, no sale snit.

Yaw, ah’s ad, wonders done son.
Adapt fig snack - cinnamon.

Bat at nasal air to traps.
Bang one top, snow deer gaps.

Put I awake, estate’s pal.
Push sure sold lone model’s gal.

On fire vent, in or afoot,
Oh . . Oh . . Oh no, mired in soot.

Bag one by a log rack sat,
Ball lode, tons a loot, a bat.

Tab a tool, as note doll lab.
Task cargo lay, be no gab.

Too snide, rim on, ho-ho-ho.
Too far on it, never if no.

Lag sled omen - “old lose rush sup”.
Lap set at seek a “wait up”.

Spa greed won, spot e-nog nab.
Spar to trial a Santa tab.

No man Nick cans gift pad “A”.
Nose nods red, now dash away!

Tinsel as one tis gone.
Tinker as net, time it on.

Pace it, no peels, so get set.
Pan an eve’s midnight net.

Ruffled lot onset afar.
It’s God on, still its star.

Do owe rifts a fa-la-la.
Do ogle on, even I saw.

How timely!

If you add a comma after Tootsie, you're alleging that the cross-dressing character thought to have been played by Dustin Hoffman was actually a pope in drag.

Did I say a pope is Tootsie, Pop? Ay, as I did.

Which raises all sorts of interesting questions.

Hey thanks for pointing that out, Mark.
If palindromy were part of the school curriculum I'd wager many previously indifferent students would learn to love grammar.
Sales of _Eats, Shoots & Leaves_ would skyrocket! :-)

Homage to the author of the Inspector Maigret novels...

(Although it quickly got off topic :-) )

None missed a venison dish.
Sin upset urban Italy.
My Latina brutes punish Sid.
*No* sin evades Simenon!

Explanation: Georges Simenon is hired by the Vatican to investigate a rash of food poisonings at the conclave. The butler did it?! Chaos ensues...

I think I got carried away... in this case shorter is better:

Georges Simenon is asked to investigate a rash of food poisoning:

"None missed a venison dish, Sid.
No sin evades Simenon!"

A few new palindromes

Here are a few palindromes I wrote this morning. The last came to me almost accidentally while I was texting a friend about syrup of ipecac of all things:

"Moody, deep slang is daft fad--signals speedy doom."

"Avid slang is daft fad, signals diva."

Over-Hasty Informers: "Wonky tips? Defy Feds' pity--know!"

Annoyed Nurse with Poisoned Patient: "Emetic delivery reviled. Cite me!"

Oops...there's an extraneous

Oops...there's an extraneous "s" in the 2nd half of my "Moody deep slang" palindrome. It should read "Moody deep slang is daft fad. Signal speedy doom!" which doesn't work nearly as well, sigh.

Attempting a word-unit palindrome...

This one's for the "brilliant" Washington legislator who claimed bicyclists produce more CO2 than cars:
"Notice to Public: Exercise taxing respiration? Consuming energy bars? Legislator bars energy-consuming, respiration-taxing exercise. Public to notice."

A palindrome about Al Gore

(Here, "natron" is an ancient Egyptian funerary salt, "silos" are missile silos, and "cold nadir aerosol" refers to the "ozone hole.")

"Emus," said Al Gore, "need erasure! Vile dodos! Panda bane, design in raw natron, I made us silos, ore--arid and loco!" So, cold nadir aerosol issued a minor tan warning. Is Eden a bad nap? So DO deliver us! Are Dee, Nero glad, I assume?

And here is a very racy 2,222-word palindrome I wrote: www.longpalindrome.mysite.com

Delightful and perfectly concise

Wow, that is humorous and so compact! That's something I've never really worked on: short, meaningful, concise palindromes. I've always striven for length over elegance, imparting humor where possible. Quite a bar you've set!

For a nerdy linguist

(James is a friend in Taiwan, a linguist. The "Turing Test" is an operational definition of intelligence, where a person conversationally interacts blindly with a computer, thinking it is a human. If she can't tell the difference, the computer has passed the Turing Test. Here, it is the reverse: Alan Turing is trying to convince someone by a computer log that he is a mindless computer. A.I. is Artificial Intelligence.)

"Don I a modem, eh, Prom as tense, major panic? A.I., notes Rev. Al, lacks a Turing I sum egoless, a passe log. Emu, sign! I rut, ask, call. Averse to niacin, a pro, James, nets a morpheme domain OD."

This is the pivot point of my long palindrome.

Two horribly different semipalindromes

HAWK:
Sal, a seidel bided. Alas, a burg tugs: I bombard war-mad enemy arts, for I, ape, reign at rats' dismay. An acrid and assailable urge is murder. Plug, sob; oh!

DOVE:
Hobos gulp red rums, i.e. gruel, Bali as sad nadir. Can a yam, Sid; start, Angie, repair of stray men. Edam (raw), drab mob, is gut grub. A salad, edible, dies. Alas!

Shameless advice

"Dwell lazily at spots won in raw iris abandon! Nod; nab a sir, I warn. I now stop: stay, Liz, all lewd!"

I can extract (too) many dumb palindromes from the long one to which I referred above, so I'll only post if and when I can create shorter, more elegant palindromes.
