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.

(162) Sublingual Tmesis

Convene a whole nother temple

Of dis sip to lean morrow stem

A dis round cover cong fume rats

Let boil it on the internet

Whatseasoever bed it nakes

Skin slip veer ring kins on the take

As it moves a new fuse bout hiss

Eye monkey’s candy wedding bliss

Mewitmory collage colors

Pretbuotyyant holt come roar

The huge cost men Brit shedish pound

To pace make gur on this old hound
