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.

(221)  Since Have Accepted Myself Enter

I don’t feel anything


The pain!  Stain glass pane!  Paint!  The pain.

I don’t know what this is about?

What the hell!  Cut it out!

Let’s pretend it was someone else.

It was me they mutilated!

It hurts.  You’re late.  Good morning! 

Prenumbra for pain sake!

Why I see clearly through things.

To xertz a fountain drink.  Gulp choke.

A jentacular scramble eggs!

Pain before depression.

Nudiustertian I beg you!

Pain translates to raging anger!

Anger turns to war,

To intellectual property,

To compensation,

To potential for happiness,

Into what you are reading.
