Brian DID mention "a Teenage SYMPHONY TO God" (=SMiLE), actually. But since there was some kind of libretto involved, why not call it an opera?
Exactly what did he have in mind? We only need to read his (revised) message backwards to find out - in the following haiku-palindrome: An opera la 'The Tales of [E.T.A.] Hoffmann'?:

>'A Teenage Opera

To God? DO got "arepo"!

E.g.: an e-E.T.A.'<

Andy Paley deserves his own palindrome. Even his surname calls for one! After all those years of hard work he put into his collaboration with Brian, and relatively little OFFICIAL output to show for it; we can only speculate: Y??? (co-starring usual suspect, *Eugene Landy*)
[This one should be proof, that anyone can create a (haiku-)palindrome. It all grows out of that first line: the name with a suitable suffix! The rest is backward paddling and spelling, trying to make sense of it/add meaning to it all:]

New original limerick (as one would expect it from a dr. O'Limerix) written in the good olde "naughty-but-nice" tradition. So if if you are being a wee bit PRICKly about the subject, just don't read on! Improvements are welcome ...
(The OSCAR WILDEst limerix  # I:)

O. Wilde once DID talk in gay Limerick

 Historical limerick in 4 parts about the mock trial against Oscar Wilde (which - the case itself - was the real DISGRACE i.m.h.o.) BY ALEXANDER BARON ...
(OSCAR WILDEst limericks # IV:)

There once was a writer named Wilde,
whose sexual habits weren't mild,
        In fact they'd appear
     To be shockingly  queer,
For a nobelman's son he defiled.

The Marquis, he sent Wilde a note:
'To the sodomite Oscar', he wrote,
    Oscar Wilde sued for libel,
      but soon got an eyeful,
And backed down against the old goat.

Shortly afterward came his arrest,
And poor Oscar was surely distressed
       when sentenced to do
        Hard labour for two,
Long years as Her Majesty's guest.

On release from his punishment place,
He departed in shame and all haste,
       Thus, hard up and exiled
         Did poor Oscar Wilde
Spend the rest of his life in disgrace.

And this is how it can be done (made rediculously simple:)

a) First on: write a single palindrome (a message/paragraph of 6 to 8 syllables) which read the same from both directions
b) Repete your palindrome 4 times: First as line 1, second time as line 2, third time as lines 3 & 4 (split into 2 halves) and fourth time as line 5
c) Add a rhyming word onto the end of line 1, that meaningfully can be mirrored as the first word in the last line (spelled backward)
d) Add 2 more end-word rhymes onto lines 2 & 5 respectively, thereby completing the triplet of the limerick
e) The rhyming end word  of the second line must be a palindrome in itself (as the middle word in the whole limerick-palindrome)
f) Your palindromic paragraph (split in two) forms the third & fouth lines. Complete the needed  limerick-couplet by adding a word onto the of line 4, which rhymes with the existing end-word from line 3 (a new word onto the 4th line that can be mirrored as a meaningful  opening  word in front of line 2 (backward spelled)
g) FINALLY: a new end word must be added on to the last line (rhyming with the first 2 lines). This last word needs to be mirrored as the meaningful new opening word (spelled backward) onto the opening line
h) Post your effort here (good or bad, halfbaked or whatever)...

U don't need to be like a T.S. Eliot doing milestones, to make limo-drome! Even a silly word like "limo-dromisms" (& its U-turn) can get U started [in this example I only had to write the core palindrome twice due to the abbreviations with each letter counting as a syllable:]

Earlier on - as (my) luck would have it - I had to face the fact, that Oscar Wilde did neither a limerick NOR a palindrome EVER! With T.S. Eliot, luckily,  it's different. He's been there, done that - at least one palindrome poem under his belt:

>"To I, Lester"

A cotton eve,
O, trap ! Eden !
O, television sad as night.
I  wonder if senile sirs tell war days,

  Words selfless drowsy ...
A drawl lets rise lines fired
              [No !]

With gin:
Sad as "no" is,
I've let one depart.
O, eve--
Not to care ....

--T.S. Eliot<


And a limeRISQUE Eliot-poem from 1916:

Without sounding too limodromatic about it, I'd say that T.S. Eliot has created an absolute masterpiece, incorporating (like he does) both a title AND his own signature into the palindrome poem!
The following limerick-version comes with only one original TSE-rhyme (O/No!) and two half-rhymes (war days/drows^y + DEpart/ELIot), including its own GIN-induced haiku-palindrome added. CHEERS! Limo+-drome poem from T.S. Eliot (as limeRICKTIFIED by Dr.O':)

            >>"To I, Lester"

    A cotton eve, O trap ! Eden ! O,
television sad as night. I wonder if {yo*}
           senile sirs tell war days
           words selfless, drowsy
A drawl lets rise lines {OY!} fired  [No!]
                           ~
WITH gin:  sad as "no"
IS: I've let one depart
O, eve--  Not to care ...          
                       --T.S. ELIot<<

A Thomas Eliot-limodrome poem originally written by Alastair Reid:

      >>T. Eliot: top YAP-bard

notes PUTRID! aka tang emanating, IS sad.

        I'd assign it a name: "GNAT"

In case anyone wonders about the CAPTION gone missing:

>"WAS it ELIOTs toilet I saw?"<

Sure, it was. But U  DIDn't see the next palindrome!:

>"T. Eliot NIXES sex in toilet!"<

Guilty as charged: American/Brit Author T.S. Eliot makes me all PALINDROMISTy-eyed!
The following limerick, however - written by W.H. Auden plays with the popular confusion that "The Mill On The Floss" was written by T.S. Eliot, when in fact  it was by his english (female!) namesake: GEORGE Eliot. Small wonder that Thomas is "at a loss":

 T.S. Eliot is quite at a loss
when clubwomen bustle across
        at literary teas
        crying - "WHAT, if you please
did you mean by The Mill On The Floss?"

So limo-drome #10 comes from Scandinavia IN scandinavian, I'm afraid but with a translation! Originally a haiku-palindrome by Eva Borchersen about mindfulness in tea-drinking and sweet pie-eating. The following extension is apparently the first and only limerick-palindrome in Danish(?)

a) Googl "crystal ball with magical inscription" (of all places in the world discovered almost 200 years ago in my own home turf - Aarslev on the danish isle Fyn (Funen))!
b) Notice the arrow/anchor involved! Take any ANCHOR like the one called "waxing poetic" (as an example) which appears similar (or use a sphere/ball for the project, if U prefer)
c) Ingrave the letters: A B L A N A on the left hand "arrow" of the "anchor"!  The letter Q right there in the middle. And the letters A N A L B A on the right hand "arrow"!

This is a great meeting that never took place though it could have: multitalented artist Viktor IV (alias Walter Karl/Carl Glck) lived in Amterdam with his (danish) wife INA Munck on their houseboat (on the Amstel River/canal) ALSO when the Beach Boys stayed in the Amsterdam area during the recording of their HOLLAND album in the summer of 1972. Especially the WILSONs might have been inspired by such a meeting (for THEIR ancestral dutchiness and New Yorker VIKTORs american(a)-gone-dutch?). Viktor IV could have delivered great work as an album cover artist and/or additional lyricist(?)... In the following tanka-palindrome, one of VIKTORs most famous catchphrases/oneliners is quoted (reminding us of Dennis' solo album "Pacific Ocean Blue"!) A sad similarity is that exactly 2 years after Dennis drowned, Victor IV died in a similar accident while diving from his boat doing underwater repairs (june 26th 1986). (Hero TS Eliot - another artist,"exiled" from USA - also appears:)

>>Futo's, "Who needs the 

      Pacific Ocean", Ina?

Prize-winning Yoko Ono-themed reversible haiku, created by Martin Clear:


    >Ono, miked, unaware,

damned, ruby burden made raw:

         a nude kimono.<
P.s.:
With this one I really thought I had doctored a perfect double-ended haiku. Well, like some of U may have spotted, IT's NOT! A haiku's syllable distribution must be 5/7/5 (and not like here 6/7/5 - that's just NOT on - O*NO!). ALSO: as utter Beach Boys fans we gotta ask ourselves: "could Yoko be our lost & found "Ruby Baby"? And AMAZINGLY - just adding the wee word "baby" into the equation, helped solving my original dilemma [and yes, the word "burden" must here be a one syll. only (burd'n)].
So with this lucky escape, let me present the reversible haiku by palindrome-contest prize-winner, Martin Clear:
