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 II:  The Revenge

David shot by the girl’s father

For playing spin the bottle

At ten, he came crying to me. 

For revenge, he stinged Katie’s dad.

With proof of infidelity,

He gave her father a shot back

When David turns twenty.  Thy truth.

David can now take Katie out.

Holy Father:  You must switch place!

David an ideal disciple.

Realizing the system requires

A tradeoff, David shifts blames on

Kenneth – Were you ever his bro? 

I used to change David’s diapers.

The Holy Father wanted goons! 

David – Where’s your brother Kenneth?

Kenneth writes; right here next to me! 

Are you seeing double vision?

If I’m the devil; he’s fairy!

Am I not my brothers’ keeper?
