Double-Edged Poetry
Inspired by a YouTube rapper, DeStorm, I challenged myself with poetry. In 2010, DeStorm was challenged to write a rap that could be rapped forwards and backwards. This did not mean that each sentence was read one way and back the other way. Each line was read in one order and then back in a reverse order. 
Watch DeStorm's rap here:
For my personal challenge, I chose poetry (since I cannot rap, at least not well). The poems each addressed a controversial social issue, very political. As you read each poem in one direction, it would support one side of the issue, while read in reverse, it would support the other side. They may be a free form poem or some other form.
Note: Some poems are not exact opposites, I give myself a one word leeway per poem if needed.
