Journal 48
A Collection of New Alliterative Verse

by ArchDuke Kenneth Khanh Du


“My reflection upon the current climate which send heat waves simmering throughout time.”


New Alliterative Verse has five set parameters defined by me:
1. A couplet line poem with 20 lines or less
2. Each line contained no more than eight syllables
3. Each line has alliteration of either consonant or vowel
4. The alliteration must be tied to the next line (hence couplet)
5. Rhymed or unrhymed


Alliterative Verse as a form was adopted by me from the skalds of Norway. Skalds were the Viking's poet-musicians and their poetic form began somewhere in the 9th Century. The original form(s) with many however remain unstructured and often confusing /or ambiguous.

9) I Left My Home

In my search for fame,

I’ve found you to proclaim.

Steadfast living on borrow time,

I left home and move paradigm.

We cover the streets in glitters

And gold until your hair trigger

Us into apartment rental.

Our conversations speak mental

Until the savings dry out,

I absquatulate and pout

Your grass looks so much greener here!

Underneath this bridge, my sincere.
