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.

(154) The Emotional Juggernaut

My emotions run high today.

As if I coward in dismay

At unethical conducts back

Recourse severed pent dart attacks,

By too much emotivism

To build upon factualism.

The speedy goals do not see, sense

The seething turmoil in defense.

Onism build & seize with each

Exploration to unknown reach.

Should I praise mountaineers up high 

While ingrate spelunkers below?

Dig deeper and one may expose

Extraterritorial wanes

Indiscretion of meta lanes.

Open yourself to vad channel –

An intuitive model,

Rationalism juggernaut.
