ELEVEN PLUS

I sat my eleven plus
in the eleventh hour
then I had my elevenses.
For months I was
verbal and non verbal
dreaming of parallel lines
and black spots.
When the result came
I was apprehensive.
I needn't have worried.
I'm off to the comprehensive.

Just like seventy-seven
Number ELEVEN's
A palindrome, simple and plain
