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.

 (137)  The Night of Witches

Famous people who went missing

In the Eve of full moon kissing.

They drive around looking for snacks,

Then pull into the alley cracks.

Dark web keeps me high as a kite.

Touché.  I’ll ride this motorbike.

Enter three ivy hobgoblins.

They flash their nipples for new drinks. 

I bought a round for these nymphos.

They laugh & smack me to limbo.

One tug at my shirt and waves bye.

Whispering, “Do you want a ride?”

I thought this will be my lucky

Midas touch night!  Feeling funky,

I am expecting hailed cab for kicks!

Till she pulls out a damned broomstick

And we take flight tinged night, witch long!

Suddenly, I heard a loud bong.

She smiles and blunts me in the chest,

Palpating my heart with her breast!
