No! Bob on!

Here are a few palindromes that I came up with at least independently, if not originally.

Gods rot cod, doctor’s dog!

Emit no radar on time.

Swen on snow won. S’no news.

Stand back! He’s got a blog!

From Merriam-Webster


Pronunciation: ‘snärl

Function: verb

Etymology: freq. of obsolete English snar to growl, snarl; akin to Middle Dutch snarren to hum, drone

intransitive verb

1 : to growl with a snapping or gnashing of the teeth (as of an angry dog) : utter angry or grumbling sounds with a display of teeth

2 : to give vent to anger or irritation in rude surly language : quarrel, scold, complain, or otherwise show anger or disgust in a growling, snappish, or spiteful manner

3 : to become expressed by a snarl (their anger snarls forth in angry words)

transitive verb

1 : to utter or express with a snarl or by snarling

2 : to bring into a specified situation or condition by snarling (snarled himself hoarse)

"Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back–in many ways it is a feast fit for a king." – Frederick Buechner

In which ones poetic license expires

I haven’t done spellchecker poetry in a while because I haven’t been desperate enough for something to post.

The original input:

Boob muzak hexes a bevy of party girls
and a hub-capped, manky fanzine editor.
Lax pikes rap to hoods
in argot, bugling of treading on stupidity.
Kindly blame is attached to a canny
local pug. She humphs when done.

…angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night . . .
