"The 3'rd-century poet Sotades the Obscene from Maronia is credited as the inventor of palindromes, which are sometimes called sotadics in his honor. One of his poems attacked Ptolemy II of Philadelphius for marrying his own sister, Arsinoe.
It included the line (translated form ancient Greek) "You're sticking your prick in an unholy hole." For that he was imprisoned. He escaped, but was captured by Patroklus, Ptolemy's admiral, who had him shut up in a leaden chest and thrown into sea.
This sotadic poem imagines what Sotades' last thoughts might've been.
Notice that the four different proper nouns, excluding "God", appear in four adjacent stanzas."

>>>"God

As Sotades
used a toss.

Away !
No sign.

Is sot a dog,

Is Sotades rap ?

Won't Arsinoe

(This one also works as a word-based palindrome with a slightly different reversal, though)

Back in the early nineteenseventies (according to Brad Elliott's BB-discography) Brian & Mike had been writing a complete song cycle about Atlantis. All they needed then, was someone who could score a symphony! We don't know who - so let's call that someone N.N. and see if we can't palindromically dream up some minor details. Like in the following snippet of a transcript from a meeting where they have invited that orchestrator. Brian & Mike opens the meeting. Also present are AL & T.M. (Tandyn Almer?). (Interestingly A.J. was very much into making suites back then. Like HE was the one who suggested to hook those 3 songs together for California Saga on Holland. A few years later he wrote another one - referred to as the "Monterey Suite". But the inclusion of Santa Ana Winds on KTSA took the wind right out of THAT project!]

Warner Boss, Ostin's gut reaction upon listening to H.E.L.P Is On The Way (the "enema"-enemy song:)


     >>"Mo Ostin: "Radiant

    Radish, eh!  H*E*L*P ^^

     Is On ~ Way ?  YAWN !

O si^^ple  H*, heh? SID*ART^?

  Na, I DARN it so ...  ~OM~"<<

A tanka-palindrome like this is always in danger of becoming a limerick-drome - or to die trying!:

>>G, Mo Ostin: "Radiant Radish?  A:

     H*E*L*P^^ Is On ~ Way ?

          YAWN; O si^^ple  {HAH}

          SID*ART^ ? Na.

The following verse, created by one "JP" is a multi-layered one:
- It's a word-unit palindrome
- it's a limerick
- and it can actually be sung to the tune in question (Scarborough Fair of Simon & Garfunkel-fame):

>>Where IS, sir, fair Scarborough Fair?

Rhyme must Rosemary, "thyme" and "lime" there !

            Aye, there "lime" AND "thyme"

            RoseMARY must rhyme -

fair - ScarBOROUGH Fair, sir, is WHERE ?<<

One fine limo-drome deserves another verse, right?- and hopefully this is it ( Paul Simon/dr.O:)

>>*There Goes Rhymin' SImon*; Paul as-it-were.

Simon says: "ARThur rhymin'?  No sir!

                    Never, sir: NO rhymin'

Brilliant sotadic song crafted by "GIORGIO CONIGLIOs GRANDSON" to the melody from The Sounds Of Silence. So this one TOO is  dedicated to Simon&Garfunkel:

                      
Palindromes are a dark friend
Strange insights read from either end.
They sometimes seem confused in meaning
Yet their impact comes careening.
>In word-salat, alas drown I< - poor brain lobes:
                Nasty strobes -
The Palindromes of Evil.

                      '
So, >Evil axis - six alive<
Sends >delivery reviled<
Message said, >Hades unused, ah!<
I learned that >Satan sees Natasha<
Advice received >Bats enliven evil nest, ab< -
     >Bats odd, do stab< -
The Palindromes of Evil.

                      
It >wets dab noses on bad stew<
And so >we panic in a pew<
People writing >Nightlife - filth, gin<
>DENNIS, Nell, Ellen and Edna sinned<
>Satan oscillate my metallic sonatas< unsung
          But no one flung,
>Satan I prefer pinatas<

>Di, as I said<, >Oh no! Don Ho!<
>Slap pals<: >So many dynamos<
They hear >no word, no bond: row on<
Please >no lava, not on Avalon<
              >Mix a maxim<
>Stack cats<: >lived on, no devil.<

                      
Folks >stole lots< and then were stunned:
>No dare - radon< (that was punned).
>Murder for a jar of red rum<
Forming >model truth: turtledom<
And the sign flashed out:  >Egad! No bondage<
>Yaw bus, civic subway<  - rails,
                       And >liar trail<s
>Re-paper< - Palindromes of Evil.

Limerick out of ^GCG^ (>"names reverse, man"<).:


    Palindromes are a dark friend

Strange insights read from either end

           feeding poor brain-lobes

            DEfeating nasty strobes:

   The Palindromes of Evil descend


Limericks are a dark friend too - like the following, featuring The Grim Reaper (from dr. O'Limeriex:)

There once lived a Brit named Geoff Emerick,
who's due a memorial limerick
              HE SOUNDSCAPEd THE BEATLES !
             To say THIS, is needless:
noBODY is safe when The GRIMmer Reaps
