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.

 

(144)  Emoticon Terabytes

Listen to me emoticons.

Emotions take up terabytes!

Feelings can evolve to painful

Meltdowns that crash in lieu virtual

Reality for bloggerspace!

I don’t want to hear bullies say

You need to decompress hardware!

Your downloads debug for freeware

Virus with unknown covid cure.

I need to find a source that’s pure!

Something that latches on pickups?

Node things that run without hiccups.

No animatron blow up doll?

Wholesome program will make you howl!

To be on the top of your game

Then have to rely on that, shame.

Joystick cannot break through firewall!

Your call to interface the doors

Which mirror, mouse and monitor

Tenderness has no plates here sir!
