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.

(142) A Fairytale Book Wedding Ends

I have decided to run.

Elope to Las Vegas with you

Because I am scare of your folks!

I have not asked them for your hand.

I am terrified of doing

So the excitement of running,

Running away with you open

A whole new dimension for me!  

A world I can relate to

A world I have missed for so long!

Intuition cravat on love

Not crevasse on lust. 

For a doting fantasia

To escape the reality

Of inhibition on moral

Ground speaks of rumbling glued tenure.

Are we mature to have elope?

Denial of our faithless path

Will breed anger, fright, resentment!

A fairytale book wedding ends…
