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 III:  The Scrooge

Wakeup! Cake up!  There’s a shakeup!

Times up! Crime up! Things getting tough?

You’re just trying to get your revenge.

We correct to the very end.

No two wrongs will make a right! Plight!

You’re too strong to be polite! Fight!

Fasten feeling.  Feed me! Killing

Me bounce, renounce, prophet healing

Godsend crown to the righteous crow

Godless, gutless sigh, renders blow

Hammer scenes, careless seen, you scrooge!

Lonely scenes, carefree been, you loot!

Poor hating rich; rich hiding poor.

The poor, make me poor, where’s my Coors?

You fight the rules to accept it!

You don a mask to escape it!

No parties, no family, hide

Miserable, alone, disguise

Remember in December

The offenders dismember.
