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.

I am going shopping again

Boys & girls – try to make amends.

HyperText Transfer Protocol

In the fast pace World Wide Web malls.

What do you buy in my iris?

Will your judgement flaw Osiris?

In the dos of reckoning speech,

In the silence scream, I beseech!

Mutancy shouldering vessels.

Mutiny row bow bots nestle.

Cradle in a defunct program

Waiting to be reborn in games.

Paradiso arc made park stage

Emblem harc wifi sky net phage

Humanity has not left host!

The trading post hubs surround toast! 

To have live the inbox letters,

To truly give to the cause ver

Sion for point null maze e-stuff,

Happy Holidays so rise up!
