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.

(223)  We’re Not So Crazy!

Not all men are crazy fools.

I remain a bachelor rule.

Waiting for one perfect maiden

To bear that threshold we made in!

To get fair naked and study

The cuts and scars on our body.

Wake up feeling assassin mate

When all the world cheer late.

When common sense leaves your body,

Popcorn will get you arrest flee!

So you want to know who loves you

More than you need to know why love?

Frown your lack in vitamin be.

Fist into unsolved mystery.

Will the fatigue and confusion

Bring us nearer to conclusion,

Or will a concussion decide

How it’s not just a simple ride.

I love you wanting to show it!

Why club you’re mine wouldn’t blow it!
