AUG 29, classic palindrome: Egad! an adage!


Max finds (Egad!) an adage a chore;

Likewise precepts and edicts a bore.

'Tho he's unenthused when it's

The time to pen tenets,

Mix a maxim? He crafts them galore.

"How I wish I'd explored this before."

Dr.G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022

It is unclear why Max finds the maxim more worthy of indulgence than the tenet; the latter, it is noted is a palindrome. And so are Egad! an adage, and Mix a maxim, delightful phrases that may be found in lists of classic palindromes.
