MAR 1 (2024), singable satire: "SIN and REDEMPTION" -- a traditional palindromic concoction


ORIGINAL SONG: "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands", traditional spiritual, first published in 1927.

PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, January 2014, subsequently upgraded. His bizarre terse poems on the same theme can be found HERE and HERE.

(to the tune of "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands")

The Palindromes taught us, "Dennis sinned"
Taught all the sisters "Dennis, Madam, sinned"
Taught us "Dennis lived as a devil sinned"
We're taught to know that "Dennis sinned". 

You've got to know that "Dennis and Edna sinned"
Yes, "Dennis, Nell, Edna and Ellen sinned"
"Dennis, Nell, Edna, Hannah and Ellen sinned"
You know that "Dennis and Edna sinned".

We're taught that "Dennis, Nora, Al, Aaron sinned"
"Dennis, Nell, Edna, Gert, Reg and Ellen sinned"
At "Dennis's Inn: Edna and Ennis sinned"
"Dennis' tennis sin-net sinned".

"Dennis, Nat's DNA and Stan? Sin, Ned"
"Dennis's sensuousness? Sin, Ned"
"Bed Noel, Otto, Leon, Deb"
"Dennis lived at a devil's inn, Ed".

Dennis "Evil did deliver, reviled did live",
But if everybody here would just forgive,
It could be "drawn onward" on the wind -- 
"Dennis never even sinned".

(Ed. Note)
Additional thoughts about the above lyrics for those so inclined:
Dennis, Enid and Nadine sinned.
Dennis, Eva, Dave sinned.
Dennis and Edna dined. Enid and Edna sinned.
Dennis, Rod, Enid and Edna dined or sinned.
Dennis and Ed, Nadine, Enid and Edna sinned.
Dennis and Ed, Nadine, Eva, Dave, Enid and Edna sinned.
