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.

(182)  You’re a Non-Echelon!

You have reached the pinnacle

Of stardom, you shine the brightest!

Nothing near can compare to you!

You are at the top of your game!

Say it one more time I’m ashamed.

To win at match point is no charm

Done on pro bono for workers

Who took pity on my need too

Climb to the top of the food chain,

Because maestro will have mentor 

Those above to raise dose below

Up to a higher standard of

Living and giving to the cause!

We’re all one big family, boss! 

It’s no fun lighting up the room

When nobody is around you

Until other stars surround who?

In paying you they respect you

Deserve all the recognitions

Of being on top of the world.
