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.


Come inside my sons and daughters!

Experience uncontrol laughter!

Your wildest dreams, fantasies and

Nightmares will be reimagined!

I will be your guide for tonight.

Members only give you the right

To do as you please till expire.

Tell me your pleasure and desire?

Playboy magazine not enough?

So you like to have it rough?

Come over here for a beating!

What I should have done for cheatings!

All your life, you lie to have sex.

You can’t get enough!  You hate next.

My daughter, a necessary

Evil!  My son, the devil seeds.

If I am satan, then you must

Be the devil reborn because

Only the devil would burn his

Own father! Are you this type kid?
