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.

(136)  David, Kenneth and The Holy Father

Part I:  The Offerings

David plays spin the bottle at

Ten and made the shot.  They shot back.

A few years later, David got

Revenge!  His Holy Father spots

His willingness to learn and made

Him high ranking goon.  David plays

Throughout high school and college while

He pinned his victims on older

Brother Kenneth remains a surge


25 different girls?  Who?

Who done it George of Addison?

One or both or someone sick joke?

A biblical reenactment!

The Holy Father wanted goons.

David wanted girls coming soon.

Knowledge is power to Kenneth.

Slain with Amy, alas Macbeth!

David has shape-shifted to Cain.

Kenneth been undone by Abel.
