Is "Better be late, Mister,

Is "Better be late, Mister, than a late mister." an example of this?

"better be late, mister, than a late mister"

No, Chiasmuses (?) usually have a clever way of rearranging the next part of the sentence to reflect the first.

Eg. You can take the girl out of Arizona, but you can't take the Arizona out of the girl" and phrases like this are good examples. There are also numerous examples of chiasmus in the Bible. :)
