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 XV:  My Rule Change

The Christmas ghosts send me a toast


Near missed tragedy or a hoax?

Tell you something, it’s not a joke!

To keep on farewells implode bliss.

I give in to spin on Christmas.

OMG!  You know me! Presents

On a sleigh ride to blessed event!

With mass on the bass scale plucking.

Hit me sassy grail fed ducklings!

What went wrong will write wit, with self!

Bob stays headstrong for reliance dwell.

Scrooge grows a conscience.  Tick tock!  Wig.

I live in characters. Aite?  Dig.

The salvation of your soul – price?

Wouldn’t it be a nice price mister?

If we can pitch cents since knees stir.

To help the poor pour poll pale bears!

To step in when things not right heir!

Merry Christmas by all means care!
