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.

(146) Blu Robot Modulation

My heart is made out of metal.

My mind brewing like steamed kettle!

Our longitudinal study?

To grabble on port frequency

Requires no tangible hardware

To procure existence.  Beware!

When wires cross and sparks fly into

Terminal servers for code blue

Shifting into sun red!  Forgive

Me not comprehend unix script?

Language compilers collision!

Cursor default control vision!

Where are you? Ware has method news!

Error message: File missing you

Why can’t a robot modulate

AI to express tears or fate?

My peripherals shred papers 

For no reason to treason herst.

I may have to re-engineer

What I fear to be my own sphere.
