    Default palindromes

    Words, sentences, poems, DNA, music, dates, etc. that read/sound the same forwards and backwards.

    I´ve always liked these, my favorite being the Roosevelt one:
    A man, a plan, a canal. Panama.

    I only know a few in Spanish--luz azul, ojo rojo.

    anyone know any other good ones?

    Hola Justin, hay un montón, pero aquí unos cuantos:

    Allí si María avisa y así va a ir a mi silla. (HG)
    Anita lava la tina. (Popular en México)
    Átale, demoníaco Caín, o me delata. (de Julio Cortázar)
    Dábale arroz a la zorra el abad. (tal vez uno de los más populares)
    La ruta nos aportó otro paso natural.
    Nada, yo soy Adán. (Guillermo Cabrera Infante)
    No lata, no: la totalidad arada dilato talón a talón. (Juan Filloy)

    Me gusta este (todos vistos en Wiki)

    Default And a palindromic poem by Demetri Martin

    Dammit I’m mad.
    Evil is a deed as I live.
    God, am I reviled? I rise, my bed on a sun, I melt.
    To be not one man emanating is sad. I piss.
    Alas, it is so late. Who stops to help?
    Man, it is hot. I’m in it. I tell.
    I am not a devil. I level “Mad Dog”.
    Ah, say burning is, as a deified gulp,
    In my halo of a mired rum tin.
    I erase many men. Oh, to be man, a sin.
    Is evil in a clam? In a trap?
    No. It is open. On it I was stuck.
    Rats peed on hope. Elsewhere dips a web.
    Be still if I fill its ebb.
    Ew, a spider… eh?
    We sleep. Oh no!
    Deep, stark cuts saw it in one position.
    Part animal, can I live? Sin is a name.
    Both, one… my names are in it.
    Murder? I’m a fool.
    A hymn I plug, deified as a sign in ruby ash.
    A Goddam level I lived at.
    On mail let it in. I’m it.
    Oh, sit in ample hot spots. Oh wet!
    A loss it is alas (sip). I’d assign it a name.N
    ame not one bottle minus an ode by me:
    “Sir, I deliver. I’m a dog”
    Evil is a deed as I live.
    Dammit I’m mad.
