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 XII:  Scrooge Rebuttal

Am I into hedonism?

Dance my days to crystal prism?

No to sleepy creepy person!

I’m an A Honoral student!

I have helped out with Christmas drive.

Learn CPR to help them thrive.

I collect coins for a hobby.

I don’t rob from anybody!

Why must you take my life away?

And my gold be left in dismay?

For the love of God, I have done

Nothing wrong to you or you mon!

My fault?  Your guilt! Who robs the store?

My guilt?  Your score!  Who begs for more?

It’s funny how life rolls this way.

My clients do not know me which ways! 

God!  Why have you forsaken me?

Reaper of souls!  I can change thee!

I don’t want Tim nor Kim to die!

The Cratchits become homeless cries!
