“Palindrome” is not a palindrome, which is very sad indeed,
Because then we’d have “Emordnilap”, but that is not a word.

Acronyms can resonate, offer namesakes, yet mislead.
Could there an acronym for that?   (there is, I’ve heard)

And what could be the basis of hypocatastasis?
You may find it to be nothing more than “Cart before the horse.”

But try to lead that horse to water! My friend, it’s no oasis.
You realize I’m speaking metaphorically, of course.

Why is “onomatopeia” not onomatopoetic?
(I’ve pondered this since early adolescence)

Yet one word in the ether matches meaning and aesthetic:
“Quintessence” — it’s the quintessence of quintessence!
