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.

(157) When Rubble Athletes

In love, I am an errorist.

I try so hard to write find off.

Columbusing news mean I wish

Aeonian pair had blastoff,

Afterclap with revealing self!

Unrest Canaan divides, disguise

Like a tortured Fanaa gone dry.

Yoisho to the landscape backslide.

Incorrigible force belle ame!

Twisted insouciant bedlam!

I surrender wabi-sabi

To the current rubble athletes.
