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.

(153)  Club Innuendo

Resting on the leather lounger

Talking smack with the club bouncers

VIP all the way baby!

Need I see your bloomin’ panties?

Buy me a drink sonorous toon.

Buy you the world this afternoon.

You are sitting with lacuna.

Getting ready to harpoon ya.

Are we down with phrontistery?

You want to know my history?

I am down with the OGD –

What the deep throat with iPhone gee?

No.  The Other Girl Dowry!

Let me get this straight bonabee.

You want me to put out and pay?

You’re okay!  I’ll do it! May I

Rejuvenescent the rich highs

That dadivoso consumate

Within voluptuous checkmate!

I am yours till the day I die.
