A Palindrome Tale

A Palindrome Tale I’ve got a tale to tell you of travel, love and lust The travel, it was joyful, my love life was a bust I met a girl in Tulsa, next day my diary read A **** nixes sex in Tulsa; “Dammit, I’m mad” I said So I went off to Europe to see the Mona Lisa I thought it was in Italy; but as I pee, sir, I see Pisa! A Delia saw I was ailed; I’m a fool; aloof am I When she offered me spaghetti, I said “I prefer pi” And then I found Naomi – Naomi did I moan? I did, did I? I can not lie. I headed back to home And then I met this Madam; as mad as Adam, she Evil did I dwell, lewd I did live; God saw I was dog tired Live not on evil they did say; Then my luck expired Revered now, I live on. O did I do no evil I wonder ever No sir, panic is a basic in a prison where I dwelt Ned, I am a maiden; not a banana baton had I felt Mdailey 3/31/12 A **** nixes sex in Tulsa; Dammit, I’m mad as I pee, sir, I see Pisa!

It was fun trying to see how many I could work into a poem and still have the poem make a little sense.
