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.

(134) Modern Warlock

The power of one intrepid.

I horrify through incubus!

I lay siege to a barren land

And wait for the demonic band.

Dead body attracts dead bodies.

My self-inflicted wound still seethes.

Emit at will, smell of disease.

Cancer misalign with crabtree.

What on Earth will I do without

A soul nor heart to jumpstart doubt?

It's like marrying Lilitu;

So deadly she’ll split you in two!

Without provocation through hell

When saints awaken all Hallow’s

Day to join in the fight for good

Versus evil rules in falsehood! 

The Devil takes no redeemer.

Your soul burns forever dreamer.
