I'm very impressed by everyone's contributions. All I could come up with was:
Lo, o pal, Luton not Ullapool.

You're too clever by half, Mike...

I've found a few variations online on the following sort of thing:

Rettebs, I flahd noces, eh? Ttu, but the second half is better.

I am finding palindromes to be very addictive. e.g. never targets a rodent, Ned, or a St. (e.g. rat revenge). Looks like I need to practise.

I particularly like the laminate one Mike.

I had to cheat a bit in this next one:
At midday or noon, Roy, add, 1 'm', ta.

I've decided not to think about shoehorning meaning into mine. That way madness lies.

Mark nipple hat. A nostril flirt. Sonata, help pink ram.

Olga felt Surinam regrets. No monster German. I rustle fag. Lo!

This is very difficult, isn't it?  I am very impressed with laminate pet animal.  I only try out short words.  There has been a power cut here (and some snow in spring) today so I sat with a bit of paper, but no great sense came.  And sadly not even good nonsense.  But here are my poor attempts.

Boo, was Ron on Beeb?  No, nor saw boob.

Anna ogre? er, goanna.

I thought I'd try a poem with lines beginning with O but it didn't advance past
O gnat tango,
O gala al ago.  

Which didn't seem worth persevering with.  

Cheers, Caro.
