The Lyrics

My grandfather had posted 2 songs here whose lyrics consisted primarily of palindromes. Now it's my turn; "Names reverse, man"
Palindromes are a dark friend
Strange insights read from either end.
They sometimes seem confused in meaning
Yet their impact comes careening
"In word-salad, alas drown I" - poor brain's lobes;
Nasty strobes -
The Palindromes of Evil.

So, "Evil axis - six alive"
Sends "Delivery reviled"
Message said, "Hades unused, ah!"
I learned that "Satan sees Natasha"
Advice received, "Bats enliven evil nest, Ab"
"Bats, odd, do stab" -
The Palindromes of Evil.

It "Wets dab noses on bad stew"
And so "We panic in a pew"
People writing, "Nightlife - filth, gin"
"Dennis, Nell, Ellen and Edna sinned"
"Satan, oscillate my metallic sonatas" unsung
But no one flung,
"Satan, I prefer piƱatas".

"Di, as I said", "Oh no! Don Ho!"
"Slap pals"; "So many dynamos"
They hear "No word, no bond; row on"
Please "No lava, not on Avalon"
My word! "Lisa Bonet ate no basil"
"Mix a maxim"
"Stack cats"; "Lived on, no devil"

Folks "Stole lots", and then were stunned;
"No dare - radon" (that was punned)
"Murder for a jar of red rum"
Forming "Model truth: turtledom"
And the sign flashed out "Egad! No bondage"
"Yaw bus. Civic subway" - rails,
And "Liar trail"s
"Re-paper" - Palindromes of Evil.

Last I heard of Dennis, that randy bastard was only sinning with Edna. Now you tell me he's added Ellen and Nell to his palindromatic harem! I heard tell that when Don Ho tried to horn in on the action, the ladies all responded, "Oh! .. no Don Ho"

As impressive as this is on a whole the new "Dennis, Nell, Ellen and Edna sinned" is not a palindrome, the names are there in both directions, but not in the same order. :-P

@Peter; I am flattered that you looked carefully enough to realize the mistake I made in copying. The correct rendition should be... "Dennis, Nell, Edna and Ellen sinned", and I will be sure it's correct on our blog. But I will reward your diligence by dedicating to you another new 'drome dealing with sin. You may think of it as the GRAVLAX PALINDROME. (It is based on the classics, "No 'x' in Nixon", and "No, Miss. It is Simon".) It goes, "No 'm', lass. Tin is sin. It's salmon.".

How do we know Dennis sinned with all these women. Because of eyewitness testimony, direct confessions ... AND DNA!

listened to "Bob" by "Weird Al" Yankovic recently did we? 5's
Otto - April 27, 2016 - Report this comment
Virtuoso performance in stringing together palindromes (with connecting words), paced to the OS. However, the theme of Evil suffers from the constraint of using palindromes. The narrative and point of view lack clarity, continuity, and coherence. Most, but not all, the palindromes are about evil. So, as an entertaining parody, this doesn't satisfy me. IMHO, both you and Weird Al (with "Bob") have tried to do too much. So to both of you, shape up or ship out. 5s.

Grandpa, the point of the parody is to present palindromes which are mostly variations on the theme of Evil and which are paced to the OS. The palindromes are front and center; this is not a conventional parody. You should have asked if the "ah" in "Hades unused, ah!" does double duty for the missing "ah" at the beginning of "Satan sees Natasha." No need for that device. A new "Ah" could replace the word "that," which precedes "Satan."

Palindrome is to parody what pun is to humor.
Sarah Palindome - April 28, 2016 - Report this comment
Troll's adage (Egad!) could be taken as a i)"tenet" or 2) an "Otto-motto". In any case, "Pun up if I pun up" (ditto for 'put', 'pull' or 'puff')

Thanks all for interesting comments. CML, your interest in Dennis's sin-circles mught be satisfied by checking formulas for 5-sinner groups on my blog. O's Grandson, you have identified a small glitch, and its cure. Thanks. These wordplay farces are very demanding, and errors get magnified, "Spoof- oops!" - sec. code QAQ!
