My Brain – Part VI

Why isn’t the word palindrome spelled
the same backwards as it is forwards?
Why isn’t the word ‘lisp’ spelled ‘lithp’?
If synonym means same
and antonym means opposite
are syns the opposite of ants?
Do the ants know about this?
Or is it ‘sins’ and ‘aunts’?
As if no aunt ever had less than virtuous intentions.
Oh dear, the squirrels are loose in my brain again
and they’ve been drinking coffee and reading
grammar textbooks.
They are looking up the definition of assonance
and giggling.
