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.

Part II:  Tiny Tim

Turn your back on me if you must!

Make sure what you’re saying robust!

Did I crossed eye cheat or lie?

Biz fire, lost hire comet your cry?

More money, more worry, no death

Can carry, your love buried, theft

Rampant repent defend my men!

Godsend pretense no angel, wren

On the fly, elide, ally, cope!

Poke it, broke hiss, I choke bliss, dope!

Review your own mortality?

Kill for fund a reality.

Cleaner, beaner, zip lock, o’clock!

Greener, meaner, win stock, epoch!

What will you do with awe dei loot?

Does the church want you give a hoot?

Tiny Tim does have a big heart!

Good son, no dunce, make it lionheart!

Solve one crime, ignore another?

Screw your brother and your sister?
