My One Square Meal

Like murdrum, seities are lost
Pullup of life, struggle to live
Denned life of misfortune
Income I eke, meagre paycheck
Survive I everyday
On succus, water and breadloaf
I search in my pocket for halalah
Forever thirsty and hungry
Hungry and thirsty forever
For halalah in my pocket I search
Everyday I survive
On loaf bread, water and succus
Paycheck meagre, eke I income
Misfortune of life denned
Live to struggle life of pullup
Lost are seities murdrum like.

Palindrome words used are below
Murdrum
Seities
Eke
Pullup
Succus
Halalah

This is a Palindrome poem I wrote a couple of years ago.I am posting this again because I know several poets here who are interested in various poetry forms, expecially you Brad Osborne @commonsensiblyspeaking. 

A Palindrome is a word, number, phrase, or other sequence of  characters which reads the same backward as forward. Composing literature in palindromes is an example of constrained writing.
I call it disciplined creativity.

  1. Wow! My palindrome word to describe your work and talent Yassy, you are just beyond this world. I agree that takes a level of concentrated discipline and the heartfelt story you put into it, no matter how you read it….backwards or forwards, it’s simply beautiful emotion.🌹🌹

      1. Nope, I definitely can’t write this form. It takes me a few days to pen a sonnet. Figuring something like this out would take months and I’d probably end up losing my mind before nearing completion. Some poets just have it 🙂

      5. Oh, the rhymes… only poets can rhyme. It takes me a long time to find words that fit together to make them rhyme. Another form I stay away from 🙂

      6. I like all the work of most poets here , rhyming doesn’t matter D. Poetry doesn’t necessarily have to rhyme , don’t box yourself into thinking that if you don’t rhyme you can’t write. 🤓

  2. “A man’s gonna do
    what a man’s gonna do
    when he’s got a hungry
    mouth to feed.”
    ~ Bob Dylan

    Thank goodness we don’t live
    by bread alone. Imagination
    is the power of creation from
    the spiritual zone 🌈 ♾️🌟👀

  3. You are consistently surprising! That is exceptional work, considering the form seems like it would be a true challenge to write. And yet you make it look easy. Thank you for pushing me and for the shout out! You are the best! ❤
