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.

(188) Your World Interrupted

I am taking a break right now.

Break a wage running steps for chow.

Try out loud more lunch calories.

Take a walk for dinner daily.

My world is good.  Am I living?

Undertake commune misgiving

To gather in private thoughts full.

To discuss matter through walls bull.

Troglodytes are on the rise from

Elders’ gerontocracy come!


Surrender the 5th and behold!

Pretend what truth you’ve miss unfold.

What I give to you, I can take

Away the power for God sake!

She was never yours, one of us

No matter how much she trusted

Your love will bring her misery!

I write to share your mystery.
