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.

(219)  Love Why Brother?

You’ve outdone yourself pretty boy!

Use someone else wife for sex toy?

He heard your complaint of no work

While at church, the husband offered

You a job fixing up his house.

You then robbed him of his spouse?

Caught red handed pounding away!

You then flee the scene in dismay.

What kind of a man are you now?

Spank the hand that feed you out loud!

Walk in the same church on Sunday

Acting like there’s nothing to say.

Until that man child points a gun

Right at you! In church!  You look stun!

Where’s the white mob to protect you?

Now you stand embarrassed with who?

Married kid does not want to shoot!

His cousin took your sister’s chute

For a slide by the church altar.

Hasidic Romans left with scars.
