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.

I got a girl mowing my lawn.

Another girl cleaning the house.

One girl to clean the backyard pool.

Where to hire massage parlor girl?

Been marry four times; divorce twice.

Say what donkey holdings?  Slice nice!

Me a pie of your retirement.

Requirement to a successful living? 

You be generous and giving.

Sorry, but I am still waiting

Like a leprechaun, to get with!

For my pot of gold, to get rich!

Work it! How do you do work at?

Wet busy.  Regret down. Get it?

Life is what you make do of it!

Some work hard, then booze away their

Savings the penny pinchers too,

Then realize it’s too late, too old, 

Too decrepit to start training

For anything time consuming!
