Stanley Cooper

Rookie - 20 Points (August 4th,1926 / New York City)



What in the world does it mean?
To me it’s most ambiguous
What can I from it gleam
This word that’s so mysterious

I know it’s something read
The same way, to and fro
To write of it I dread
But I’ll give it my best go

The topic is quite comical
Its difficulty dares me
This subject “Palindrom-ical”
I think perhaps it scares me

A palindrome of numbers
Would be one and two and one
One needs no brainy lumber
Can be grasped by anyone

A palindrom-ic word
Like R-A-D-A-R
Is very often heard
And therefore not bizarre

The palindrome word “poop”
Is just my last example
I will no longer stoop
I believe it’s more then ample

When I wrote this bloody spoof
I was in a bloody stupor
It is the bloody proof
Of a bloody nincomCooper

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
