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.

(175) It’s a Doggy Dog World

I sometime question my notion

Of love, wand and magic potion

Intuitively meet at brunch

To discuss milieu counterpunch

On juxtaposition often

Desert in high societal qualm

As important evidence. Why

Shelter the silence dogs that hide

Rather than bark at intruders,

These dogs would often play dead sir

Instead of guarding the office,

Wand dog punch a hole to suffice

His rage for not being fed steak!

I am going on my lunch break.
