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.

Tis the season for reflection.

May I rewind satisfaction.

Trend con verse vex next sensation!

Are you with me besties faction?

Whose word worse walrus wannabe.

West hymn merch mall murky terse fee.

Ten digits tapping rap pong list.

Let’s form mate emulate run blitz!

Ripened tangerine launch palate.

Cranberry red dish bane carriage.

Ring a ding holler on the bell.

Christmas hip shop hopper stay well.

Break it down with a jingle ale.

Yodel lay leo in the dale!

Me bangsta chime chomping nogs cream.

Whiz bigga than croccante toast gleam!

What’s your dream? Aite! Aite! Rally crunch.

Drop me a pitch!  Stop & go fund.

Factory run ditch hipster bred.

Record break ed fast cd bed.
