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 Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
