Treasure Island

Stanley Cooper

(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

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
