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.


(179)  Karaoke Improv Night

It’s Friday night.

Karaoke night.

One crooner on the microphone

Vibrato out a mellow poem:

I cannot live without your love!

You’re my angel send from above.

You’re my demon needing fast love.

Rocking till dawn, never enough!

Baby.  I feel weak in the knees.

When approach, unable to speak.

Like a fruit tree without ever

Blossoming into endeavors.

When first touch, you’re the severe one.

End my sentence with one two punch.

Laughing so hard till we achoo!

It’s pure madness in loving you!

Please live completely in my heart

And pay no rent till we’re spare parts.

Pull together humming engine!

Now and forever, yours fuel spin!
