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.

(215)  Have We Met Before?

Say!  Do you want to go out there?

Where we ski and board to nowhere.

Dive and somersault through a dare,

While the infants take their plunge bare.

Where avalanche surf the impairs!

Slay! Where did you learn how to ski?

Are you looking to kill yourself?

Or you want to get high on speed?

There’re enough trees between you meat!

Try to stay alive in knees deep.

Hey!  Are you coming home tonight?

The mood will be lively & bright.

I’ve prepared ipad dinner right.

Everything will be nice.  Alright?

I am calling you from the light.

Fray!  Will you give in to my life?

Where we cold play and have no strife.

Call my estate your afterlife.

Stay!  Will you be my loving wife?

Rather you stab me with this knife.
