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.

(193)  Dapper X Mas 

Part XI:  In Defense of Scrooge

Scrooge did not try to deceit home

Buyers with large family whom

Pay very low monthly mortgage

With fixed variable interest rates

Explained and highlighted in fine

Prints!  With one source of income signed

To pay for the mortgage, it’s no

Wonder they cannot pay with so

Many mouths to feed!  Scrooge offer

Them a way out without lender’s

Penalties! He pays their mistakes!

Not paying monthly rent creates

Their fixed loan to compound interest!

Irresponsibility plagued

With sickness caused savings & loans 

To uncouple drown in debts moan!

Scrooge also suffer great losses!

He is forced to be a scrooge boss!

Even Jesus can only cure

One at a time to save the poor!
