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.

(156) Indo-Aryan

Who would have known that Aryans

First introduce Hinduism

To India in the second

Millenium, Before Christ-dom.

The ‘Aryan Race’ emerged war

Only recently with fuhrer

In the 19th Century, they

Claim as hate:  Indo-Aryan.

True Caucasians live further north.

They have Vandals so far away Huns.


Indo-European represents

A subgroup of the Caucasians:

Romans, Greeks, Germanic people,

Also include Balts, Celts, and Slavs,

Majority of Eurasians,

And the modern inhabitants

Of North and South Americas.

Are we?  Who we are.
